MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A recent poll of Florida pet owners who had adopted or bought an animal during the pandemic says over 1/3 is experiencing post-pandemic pet regret.
It revealed that over 1 in 3 pet owners worry that they will not be able to care for their pets adequately as life returns to normal, and they spend less time at home.
“Being home alone means many people have been spending more time scrolling through social media. While some are tempted by online shopping purchases promoted by influencers and celebrities. One in five new pet owners said they were influenced into adopting or buying their animal after seeing others post their cute pets on social media,” the poll found.
