Do you love animals? You’re not a alone. According to the ASPCA, 70-80 million dogs and 74-96 million cats are owned by Americans. When you consider all the other types of pets — fish, hamsters, birds, snakes, etc — Americans probably own over 200 million animals. These animals need food, shelter, toys and services, and their owners are happy to pay for them, which makes a home-based career with animals a viable one.
Over at Home Business About.com, I posted an article on six home-based businesses you can start that involve pets. If you enjoy caring for and loving animals, these one of these six ideas might be perfect for you.
