There are enough pets for almost everyone in the US

There are now about 245 million pets in the US. The human population of the US was 327 million in 2018.

So, if you exclude kids under 6 years old, there are enough pets for almost everyone in the US. And that’s good because a study conducted by SeniorLiving.org says pets are good for you.

But New Yorkers aren’t taking full advantage of that goodness. New York is only the 44th-highest pet-owning state in the country. Almost 48 percent of New York households own a pet.

And 27 percent of New York households own dogs, while 21 percent own cats.

That puts New York in 43rd place in cat ownership and 47th place in the dog category.
