With over 11.9 million businesses owned by illustrious women in the US, there’s definitely a growing trend in the rise of shepreneurs. What’s even more impressive is that these female powerhouses are choosing to step into the animal-care industry.
The fact that more and more millennials are putting off having children of the human variety to favor the adoption of fur babies has caused the global pet industry to experience an incredible boom. Females across the globe are leading the pack to cater to the rising need for more pet products and services.
From honeybees to elephants, snakes, crocodiles, killer whales, and doggos, women entrepreneurs have taken charge to lead the way by inspiring the world to make animal-friendly choices. They’ve shown the world that living with compassion and kindness isn’t only good for animals or your health; it’s also incredibly profitable for business—not just in the animal-care industry, but also across several other industries.
Let’s look at some women who found success by making waves in the global pet industry.
