People More Interested in Pets Than Money in a Divorce: Survey

Fido has some real pull.

A new survey of 1,500 pet owners in the US by petMD has revealed some interesting facts.

A stunning 90 percent would fight harder for a pet in a divorce than they would for money.

With candidates starting to emerge for the 2012 run for the White House, here’s an interesting stat for some contenders to keep in mind: Two-thirds of those with pets would not vote for a presidential candidate if they think he or she dislikes pets.

If they were forced to have only one friend, 73 percent said they would have their pet fill the role instead of a person.

Ninety-eight percent say it’s important for kids to grow up with pets around them.

It may be time to stock up on some bread and milk because one quarter of the respondents admit they’re tried their pet’s food.

It may be a dog-eat-dog world, but pet owners would like their animals to take of their own breath, with half saying they wish their pets could brush their own teeth.

Twenty-two percent feel their pet spends too much time alone.
