There’s a company in Texas that has come up with a great idea! The Zebra, which bills itself as “the nation’s leading insurance comparison site” has announced that their employees are being offered a $300 stipend to adopt pets. The money can be used to cover adoption fees.
Employees also have opportunity to opt for an insurance plan to cover their new, four-legged family members. AND the company is encouraging employees to take paid time off after adopting a new pet. They’re offering “pawternity leave” so that employees can get their pet settled into their new home.
So far, six employees have claimed the $300 and have taken advantage of their employers offer. What a great idea! For single people, this is especially helpful. This is also helpful to the local animal shelters. Totally dig this idea.
