Poll results: how many pets do you have?

We wanted to know how many pets you have.

So, we asked!

Three or more

Wow, 35 percent of you – that’s almost a third – have three or more pets! Sarah E has two cats and a dog so this is where she would fit in too.

Ones and twos

One in five of you have two pets and another one in five of you have just one pet.

That makes 75 percent of you, overall, who has a pet of some type.

No pets at all

A quarter of you have no pets at all but 13 percent say they would like a pet one day and 4 percent used to have a pet.

That’s some pretty interesting stuff. Let us know which category you are in and what pets you have!

Hi, I'm Sarah and I look after our fantastic junior membership. I've been at the RSPCA for seven years and I've loved every minute. There are so many dogs around the office - it's great to get to know them all! I love animals and used to have five amazing pet rats. And, in case you didn't know, rats are possibly THE best pet. Well to me anyway. I don't have a favourite animal though - I think they're all amazing. I've even started to like spiders a bit more, weird I know! The thing I enjoy most is seeing animals in their natural habitat - to me there's not much more thrilling than that.

        AHHHH. I love puppies.

      • Olivia

        I love puppy’s. 🙂 The thing that’s not good is that they grow into big dogs- but there still nice when there big dogs. 😉

      • Sarah K Sarah K

        That’s a good thing to mention, Olivia. Sometimes people get a puppy thinking they’ll be like that forever, but animals get older just like us. We have to remember that bigger animals need more space and more food! Always make sure you think about the long term commitment of getting a pet before you go ahead. There’s A LOT to think about.

      • Olivia

        I have enough space for my medium dog, he’s fully grown and has enough space and he loves it!!!!

    my cat went missing, I hope she didn’t get knocked down by a car as she is only young.

      • Olivia

        Well the thing is we went to look for her and couldn’t find her then we went back to give her some food in case she came back late and then she came climbing down the ladder as if to say “Where have you all been” and I think she even was asking the Jasper. (my dog) 🙂

    I got 2 dwarf hamsters 3 days ago we were ment to get one normal hamster but the pet shop keeper said that normal hamsters are hard to get so we got 2 dwarf hamsters instead the brown one is called Nibbles and the white one is called Hammy they both have red eyes. 🙂
