2020 Pet Trends

  • Can dogs get coronavirus: With an unprecedented pandemic sweeping the globe, pet parents took their concerns to their pets. One of the most popular dog-related topics searched for in 2020 was whether or not dogs could contract COVID-19.
  • Cats and COVID-19: Similarly (and as expected), pet parents also wondered if their beloved feline companions could be affected by the novel coronavirus, especially after news broke that a tiger was diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • Pet adoption and fostering: With so many folks shifting to working from home full time, many animal lovers realized they now have the flexibility to care for a dog or cat and took to opening their home to a foster animal, or adopting a pet as part of their family. The great news: “Animal shelter intake in March [2020] was down dramatically compared to last year, with 24% fewer cats and dogs entering shelters or rescues,” said Sara Kent, Chief Executive Officer at Shelter Animals Count.
