The Top Markets for Pet Owners

August 29, 2016 1:13 am


Eighty million households in America own at least one pet—that’s a lot of animals! Some housing markets are more pet-friendly than others, with more pet care businesses and providers available than in other areas.

Based on those criteria, WalletHub.com compiled the top 10 “Most Pet-Friendly Cities” in the country:

1. Orlando, Fla.
2. Birmingham, Ala.
3. Tampa, Fla.
4. Lexington, Ky.
5. Scottsdale, Ariz.
6. Reno, Nev.
7. Colorado Springs, Colo.
8. Cincinnati, Ohio
9. Las Vegas, Nev.
10. St. Louis, Mo.

Orlando comes in at No. 1 for its high density of veterinarians—65.6 per every 100,000 residents. Orlando also boasts the highest density of pet-related businesses, at 172.25 per 100,000 residents.

Scottsdale, Ariz., No. 5 on the list, has the highest number animal shelters per 100,000 residents: 6.26.

Many markets not in the top 10 are pet-friendly, as well—the least expensive pet care costs can be found in Stockton, Calif., where a veterinary visit averages just $32.92, and the least expensive dog insurance premiums ($21.63 per month) can be found in St. Paul, Minn., also not in the top 10.
