This Company Is Doing Something Incredible For New Pet Parents

There are many companies who won't even give new parents time off with their human babies, but this company has done the greatest thing for animal lovers and awarded new pet parents their own form of parental leave.

The Scottish Brewery BrewDog has announced that they will start to give employees who bring home a new dog (whether a puppy or a rescue) a full week of paid leave.

They have also increased the paternity and maternity pay so that the human children get proper love too. James Watt is the founder of the company and says the decision was made to help employees "take the stress out of" getting a new dog.

"We know only too well that having a new arrival - whether a mewling pup or unsettled rescue dog - can be stressful for human and hound both. So we are becoming the first in our industry to give our staff a working week's leave on us to help settle a new furry family member into their home," BrewDog announced on their website.
