FRANKLIN, Tenn., Nov. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Mars Petcare launched the "Keeping People and Pets Together" Report, which draws insights from consumer and shelter survey data to examine current trends in pet ownership. The report's findings center around the increased time families – including their pets – spent together and how the pandemic transformed the way we work, live and go about daily routines. The third Annual Report analyzes the strengthened relationships between people and their pets, as well as what is top of mind for pet parents in the year ahead, with a look across several key areas including: pets and emotional well-being, welcoming pets in more places (work, travel and play) and barriers to pet ownership.
