Carry My Pet, India’s trusted pet relocation company, recently surveyed over 1000 pet parents across the country to understand the challenges they face with their fur babies. According to the survey, 68% of respondents said that intercity travel with their pets on public transportation is taxing. Around 80% of them feel that there are few pet-friendly options for public commuting.
Pet relocation, undoubtedly, can be a cumbersome task, and a lack of awareness about appropriate services can make it worse. The Carry My Pet survey validated it. Around 65% of pet parents aren’t aware of any pet relocation/transportation services in their city, while over 84% have never used any pet transportation service before.
Besides traveling, fewer pet-friendly parks/restaurants, day boarding, insurance, etc., emerged as other major challenges faced by pet parents across India. While 30% feel that there are no or lesser pet-friendly hotels/restaurants, over 12% feel the lack of parks that welcome pets. Around 10% of them state there are not enough medical facilities for their furry friends, and over 28% feel that there should be more of at-home medical facilities for pets. Nearly 36% think that emerging pet care brands should also look at day-boarding facilities.
Mr. Aamir Islam, Co-Founder, Carry My Pet, said, “Being pet lovers ourselves, we understand what parents to these fur babies go through sometimes, especially when it comes to traveling.
