Americans Love Their Pets

Posted on November 10, 2008


Those of us who are pet owners already know this, but a study by the APPA revealed that pet ownership is on the rise in America. There were 73.9 million dog owners in the US in 2005/2006 (up from 65 million in 2003/2004). Studies show that pet-related spending has doubled in the last ten years in the U.S.*

Dogs are so popular, in fact, that they even have their own social network called dogster.com. This site allows pets owners to post their dog’s profile, photos and more.

These are a few of the reasons why Billingsley Company believes it so important to have pet-friendly apartments and condos. The trails at Austin Ranch offer the perfect walking area for families and their furry loved-ones, while the unique “doggy” concierge services of One Arts Plaza gives urban doggies a chance to live in the lap of luxury.
