The Pet Industry is the 7th largest industry in the US. In 2019, $95.7 billion was spent on our pets in the U.S. This is expected to continue growing 2-3 billion a year and has averaged 5.4% growth for the past 20 years. This growth occurs regardless of the economy—people spend on their pets even during recessions. There are many options in this space for both semi-absentee and owner-operator.
