Welcome to the Animal Channel on Blasting News! Did you know that the technical term for a dog lover is cynophile and a cat lover is an ailurophile?

Pet parents: Facts and figures

A 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) shows that about 68% of US households own a pet. In the UK, nearly half of all British dog and cat lovers sleep with their pets despite hygiene concerns, according to a study by Animal Friends. Aussies spend $6.4 billion more per year on pets than fashion items and $7.3 billion more compared to technology purchases, finds a study by Choosi.
