Number of birds owned as pets in the United States from 2000 to 2017 (in millions)

by Emma Bedford, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Number of pet birds in the U.S. 2000-2017 According to a national pet owners survey, the number of birds owned as a pet by households in the United States reached 20.6 million in 2017. The number of pet birds has fluctuated over the past few years, hitting a low of 14.3 million in 2015.
Americans love their pets

Some 68 percent of all households in the United States owned at least one pet in 2017, this is an increase of over 10 percent since 1988. Freshwater fish were the most commonly owned pet in terms of volume in 2017 , followed by cats, dogs and birds. Pet ownership is, however, not evenly distributed between age groups - Americans aged between 18 and 29 were most likely to own a pet.

Industry leaders

PetSmart and PETCO, the American pet product retail chains, are the industry leaders within the North American pet market, with 1,656 and 1,482 pet stores respectively. PetSmart’s revenue reached approximately 5.32 billion U.S. dollars in the United States in the 2018/19 fiscal year ending on January 31.
