There are more pets than people in the U.S. In fact, Americans own more pets than ever before. Approximately 62% of American households now own a pet, which is the highest level in recorded history. Approximately 78% of them are hitting the road and skies each year with their furry friends.
Summer is finally upon us and it's time to make those fun vacation plans for the whole family, including your furry best friend. We're all keeping an eye on our finances these days and looking for ways to stretch our dollars.
In recent years, we've seen many disasters wreak havoc in different parts of the world: the tsunami in Thailand, Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana, and the earthquake in Haiti, just to name a few. As pet lovers, our hearts do double-duty, going out to both the people involved as well as their displaced pets.
Some hotels just allow pets, but Choice Hotels® welcomes them. They understand that your pets are a part of the family and should not be left behind when you travel, so they encourage you to bring them along!
