Company offers employees money if they adopt a pet

A company in Texas is giving their workers a reward for taking in a new furry friend. Insurance comparison website The Zebra is offering their employees a 300-dollar bonus if they adopt a dog or cat. The funds are meant to assist with costs of the new pet and the company is even offering "pawternity leave" after an adoption happens. Six employees have reportedly taken advantage of the stipend so far. 

My about a "Win/Win" and then some!!! Shelters get cleared...animals get saved...humans find companionship during a pandemic...what a truly wonderful idea! So, it goes without saying but...iHeart...ya listening???
