It is not something that I have ever been able to understand, but more people in the U.S. own a pet such as a cat or dog than in any other country in the world. Americans are crazy about their pets. More people own pets than handguns and that is a lot of pets. According to the 2011/2012 national pet owners survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association, there are approximately 78.2 million "owned" dogs in the United States and 86.4 million "owned" cats. Twenty eight percent of dog owners have two dogs and fifty two percent of cat owners own more than one cat. Dog owners spend an average of $248 a year on veterinary visits while cat owners spend slightly less than $219 a year. There are many more unowned dogs and cats.
Add in an estimated $400-$500 a year in food for the pets and the sizable veterinary investment coupled with other expenses and that comes close to $1000 a year. That doesn't begin to count the amount of money that people spend on boarding, grooming, training and other expenses. With that amount of money spent on a pet, maybe then you can see why pet safety is such a huge issue.
The real reason that people become so attached to their pets is because they've become part of the family. They provide companionship especially to elderly people. As the saying goes, dogs are often considered man's best friend. People will do anything for their pets. But when it comes to pet safety they get a little careless. Some people let their dogs and cats run around loose and that's when accidents happen.
The exact number of dogs and cats that get killed at night by automobiles is unknown but it is reported to be in the millions every year. One of the best ways that you can prevent a tragedy like that and keep your pet safe at night is with a Pet Safety Light that can be seen from a half a mile away at night. It clips to a collar, leash or harness and runs on three lithium cell batteries. Pet safety lights are waterproof and weatherproof so can be used in any type of weather conditions. They can be used on children too as a safety tool.
Don't let your pet become a statistic. If you love your pet, take some precautions with it at night with one of these pet safety lights.
