A survey by the United Kingdom’s Pet Food Manufacturers’ Association (PFMA) found that 62% of households owned some kind of pet in 2022. The survey of almost 9,000 UK households confirmed that dogs top the charts with 13 million, followed closely by cats with a population of 12 million. In a report by FEDIAF "Facts & Figures 2021,” The United Kingdom had the most aquariums compared to other European nations.

However in October, the BBC reported that pet abandonment in England and Wales increased by 25% during January through July, compared to the same period in the previous year, according to Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) data. Dog owners’ perceived that caring for dogs became less affordable in the United Kingdom in a survey of dog buyers conducted by Puppies.co.uk, an online dog breeder sales organization. Survey respondents’ perceived monthly dog care costs have risen by 94.66% compared to before the Covid-19 pandemic. On average, respondents reported that the cost of pet ownership increased to GBP108.89 (US$133.65) per month.
