Company Offering Employees $300 for Pet Adoption And ‘Pawternity’ Leave

What a great idea!

Austin, Texas-based insurance company The Zebra has a pretty cool incentive for its employees.


The company knows the importance of pets in their employees’ lives, so they are offering $300 annually for any employee who adopts a new pet, as well as offering a “pawternity leave,” reports New York Post.

Zebra CEO Keith Melnick started the program to help employees feel less lonely while they continue to work from home during the pandemic.
