The Zebra, which bills itself as "the nation's leading insurance comparison site” has announced that their employees are being offered a $300 stipend to adopt pets. The idea, to cover adoption fees.
Of course, there’s something in it for them – they’re offering insurance plans to cover the new, four-legged family members. But that’s not all.
As part of the draw, the company said employees are also encouraged to take paid time off – "pawternity leave" – to help their new pet settle into their new home.
"To the company's knowledge,” the website reads. “This is the first policy of its kind to be offered by an employer.”
So far, six employees have claimed the $300.
