Would You Die for Your Pet?
More than half of pet owners quizzed in recent poll say they would give up their lives to save their pet.
A New Zealand-based poll conducted by former SPCA officer Steve Glassey found that over 50 percent of pet owners would happily risk their lives to save their furry friends.
The experiment was carried out after researching pet owners who refused to enter emergency shelters during Hurricane Katrina because many wouldn’t allow pets.
“It comes down to core value,” Glassey disclosed. “[People are] seeing pets as more than just sentimental property, so they want to make sure that all their family is evacuated, not just select members.” (Huffington Post)
