Fun Pet Facts from Vermont – Home State of 800response

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) recently released its U.S. Pet Ownership & Demographics Sourcebook, revealing which states have the largest number of pet owners and which have the fewest.

Vermont, the home of 800response, ranked top in several pet-owning categories!

– 70.8% of Vermont households owned a pet.

– 49.5% of Vermonters owned a cat.

So, we did a quick poll in the office and found that of our employees:

– 54% of the people who work here own at least one pet, most have more than one, with a total of  83 pets among us.

– 2 frogs; 16 cats; 13 dogs;  33 fish;  1 chinchilla;  3 snakes;  2 horses;  1 turtle;  1 lizard;  11 chickens.

 

 

 

The most recent AVMA survey was conducted in 2012 but based on December 31, 2011 numbers.
