Although growth in pet ownership has leveled off in the past five years, more than 200 million pets of all kinds continue to enliven 65 million American households. These include 45 million households with dogs, 30 million with cats and nearly 20 million with other pets such as fish (6.7 million households), birds (4.1 million households) and reptiles (3.7 million households). Dogs and cats in particular have kept their special place in American culture. The vast majority of dog and cat owners consider their pets to be members of the family, and most owners think of their dogs or cats as being vital to their mental and physical health.

Yet, storm clouds may be brewing for the pet industry. Between 2015 and 2020, as the boomer cohort continues to move into their late 60s and beyond, the number of Americans in the 65+ age group is expected to increase nearly four times faster than the growth in the adult population as a whole. This rapid acceleration in the aging of America has raised an alarm for the pet industry because pet ownership drops off with age. While 53% of 65- to 69-year-olds own pets, just 34% of Americans in the 70+ age group have a pet in their home. One of the most significant questions facing the pet industry is whether boomers will follow in the footsteps of previous generations or whether, as always, they will create their own rules and keep pets in their lives well into their later years.

Pet Population and Ownership Trends takes an in-depth look at these and other trends affecting the future of the pet industry. It includes detailed estimates of the size of the American pet population today and projections of the future growth in the dog and cat population. The report also provides demographic and attitudinal profiles of owners of dogs, cats and other pets, such as fish, birds and reptiles.

The report contains a comprehensive analysis of Hispanic pet owners, a consumer segment that is vital to the future health of the pet industry. Even today, Latinos are disproportionately important to the pet industry as owners of birds and they have made a significant contribution to maintaining ownership rates among dog and cat owners.

Perhaps even more important, the report offers a fresh perspective on why Latinos are likely to be a key driver in buttressing pet ownership rates in America in the future. Packaged Facts expects that as U.S.-born generations of Latinos grow in numbers, dog ownership rates will increase dramatically among the burgeoning Latino population. The reason for this is that the more acculturated Latinos become, the more likely they are to own dogs. In fact, the most acculturated Latinos (those who have relatively low attachment to their original culture and who are English-dominant or bi-lingual) are even more likely than U.S. adults on average to own a dog (43% vs. 41%).

Scope and Methodology

Pet Population and Ownership Trends analyzes trends in the growth of the pet population and highlights the demographic and psychographic characteristics of pet owners. The report is based on two primary data sources. The first source of data is compiled from Packaged Facts National Online Consumer Surveys conducted in January/February, April/May and July/August 2014. These surveys reflect a panel of 2,000 U.S. adults (age 18+) that is balanced to the national population on the primary demographic measures of gender, age bracket, race/ethnicity, geographic region, marital status, presence or absence of children in the household and household income.

The other source of primary data is Simmons National Consumer Study (NCS) for Spring 2014 from Experian Marketing Services, which was fielded from April 2013 through June 2014. (The report uses the Spring 2004 NCS in the case of 10-year-trend tables and figures and Spring 2009 for 5-year-trend tables and figures.) On an ongoing basis, Experian Marketing Services conducts booklet-based surveys of a large and random sample of consumers (approximately 25,000 for each 12-month survey compilation) who in aggregate represent a statistically accurate cross-section of the U.S. population. The report also is based on a review of industry sources.

The report is organized in terms of the categorization of pet population data collected by Simmons NCS. In addition to capturing information on the ownership of dogs and cats, Simmons NCS asks respondents to identify the number of pets they own in the following categories: fish, birds, reptiles, rabbits, hamsters and “other” pets. Small animals such as gerbils, ferrets and guinea pigs likely account for the preponderance of pets included in the “other” Simmons NCS category, although “other” pets could also include animals as diverse as horses and poultry.
