Popular pets are regularly noted for their attractive appearances and their loyal or playful personalities. While dogs and cats are the most preferred pet animals, people also keep house rabbits, fancy rats, guinea pigs, parrots, chickens, and aquatic pets. The trend of pet adoption and keeping is gaining rapid traction across the globe.

Pet ownership is largely considered to be status symbols in emerging economies. Cats and dogs are usually adopted by the populace for psychological and therapeutic benefits. Pets influence social, emotional, and cognitive development in children, promotes dynamic lifestyle, and have even been able to detect presence of certain cancers.
