PetScoop -- Boomers and Childless Spend Most on Their Pets


According to Americans spend more on pets than beer or movies | Quartz, here in the U.S. we spend an average of about $500 annually on our pets, equating to 1% of their annual budget.

Overall Americans spent $61.4 billion on their charges, almost twice as much as global spending on movie tickets last year, with heavier outlay in our rural areas.

The most pampered American pets live with Baby Boomers and childless couples, and single pet owners and single parents are more likely to skimp on kitty and doggy spending.

Owners most likely to buy for dogs (say, little booties on Buddy) are ages 55 to 64, and couples without children, a new analysis by the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows. They spend hundreds of dollars more than those in their 20s and 30s.
