Seattle 2nd Among Most Pampered Pet Cities
By Northwest Reporter
On yet another scorecard, Seattle fared well, being named runner-up on a list of the "most pampered pet cities" in the U.S. Only Miami out-ranked Seattle.
The rankings were based on Amazon.com data on per capita sales of pet-related items, including toys, treats, grooming products, health supplies, apparel, accessories and other items.
Atlanta claimed 3rd place on the list that compared cities with more than 400,000 residents, followed by San Francisco, Portland, Oregon, Washington, D.C., Las Vegas, Austin, Tucson and San Diego.
Amazon offers a growing selection of items for dogs, cats, birds, aquatic animals, reptiles, horses and other pets. Customers who shop the pet store through smile.amazon.com can choose their favorite pet-related charitable organization and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price for tens of millions of eligible items.
