10 awesome pet-friendly companies

Pet-friendly companies are quite fetching.

Pet-friendly companies should be the norm, but unfortunately, we’re convinced that some companies are run by Cruella De Vil. OK, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch—dalmatians everywhere can take comfort in that—but the point is, some employers don’t give your pets a second thought beyond politely smiling at the 20 different pictures of your cat you have sitting on your desk. They don’t offer your pets insurance for those pricey trips to the vet, and they certainly don’t offer your pets invitations into the office.

Such foolish humans! In a 2018 Mars Petcare survey of 1,000 employees and 2,000 employers, 69% of respondents said they wish they could bring their dog to work. The benefits are clear: 87% of employers think being dog friendly help them attract and retain more talent, and 59% of employees would choose to work for a company that is dog friendly over one that isn't. 

Fortunately for Fido, some best-in-class employers understand the value pets can bring to the workplace and beyond, such as boosting productivity, lowering blood pressure, and adding a whole lot of cuteness. That’s why some pet-friendly companies offer benefits, such as pet insurance, pet daycare, or even allow you to bring your pet to work, as is the case with the companies below:
