How to Budget for Your Pet

Based on the breakdown you’ll see in our charts below, pets cost around $560–1,764 a year.

Wowzer. That’s a lot. Kind of makes you paws and think. (See what we did there?) So why do people have pets anyway?

Because you can’t put a price tag on love, some would say. Pets are more than animals. They’re pals. Still, you can put a price tag on them, if we’re being literal. (Litter-al?) It’s just that they’re worth every penny.

Maybe you’re thinking about taking the plunge into pet ownership. There’s a lot to think about, and the puggle is real. Or maybe you already have a pet and you’re trying to figure out how to get man’s best friend into the world’s best budget (our app, of course—EveryDollar). Either way, we’re here to help. We’ve got some stats and info to get your mind and budget pet-ready.

So are you ready? Purrfect. (Yeah. The pet puns aren’t going to stop any time soon.)

Today it’s not so simple. There’s a mile-long supply list with brand, color and size specifications on most items. Add to that all the fees for extracurriculars, technology and classroom materials, and you’re beginning to wonder why you didn’t buy stock in hand sanitizer or facial tissue when you had the chance.

It’s stressful. And expensive. But it doesn’t have to be as stressful or expensive—if you’re willing to do some planning before purchasing. Together with your EveryDollar budget and our list of tips, you can take on back-to-school shopping without having a breakdown next to the three-ring binders.
