Why PETernity rights matter?
Two thirds (68%) of Australian pet parents see their pet as a member of their family, whilst many vets recommend that new parents take time off to help settle in their newest family member.
Introducing a new furry family member to your household can be stressful, so it’s important to ensure that they’re supported right from the beginning – and then, throughout their lives.
Pet parenting is very similar to parenting. It’s a huge responsibility. And like people, pets need love, care and attention.
We at PetCulture believe it’s time to acknowledge the critical role that pets play in our Australian family life, and help pet parents be the best parents they can be.
