“The pet perks at The Zebra are wild, in a good way.
The insurance comparison site recently added a new benefit: paying employees to adopt pets. According to a release from the company, The Zebra will now cover ‘expenses up to $300 annually for employees welcoming a new cat or dog.’ This new perk will help employees cover adoption fees and the initial expenses of a new pet. Along with the stipend, The Zebra employees are also offered a ‘pawternity’ leave — paid time off to get acquainted with a new rescue pet.
Employees are already putting this new perk to work. Maribeliz Ortiz, an agency quality assurance coordinator at The Zebra, used the benefit to welcome Niko, a miniature long-haired dachshund and her ‘dream dog’ since childhood.
‘I’m not ready to have a child any time soon,’ she said in a statement. ‘But it feels really nice to be supported by my company to help start a family in the way I can right now.'”
