Resumo

The goals of the present study were to investigate socio-demographic characteristics and well-being indicators associated with pet ownership. The respondents (N = 801, 53.8% females; 56.2% with children) came from the five macro -regions of Brazil (8% North, 28% Northeast, 36% Southeast, 18% South, 10% Central -West). Their ages ranged from 20 to 50 years. Over half of the sample (60%) reported living with a pet. Logistic regression showed that residence type (to be owner versus renter) and parental status (to be childless versus to have chil- dren) were predictors of pet ownership. We found interaction between pet ownership and sex on well-being indicators: the Mann -Whitney test showed that men who owned a pet reported better sleep quality, better rela- tionship with neighbors and less sadness; whereas women who owned a pet reported lower life organization. With respect to life satisfaction, no differences were found between pet owners and non -pet owners. Implications of our findings and new research directions are discussed. Our study was conducted before the Covid-19 pandemic. The survey should be reapplied during and after the pandemic, so that we can deepen our knowledge of the socio- demographic characteristics and subjective well-being indicators associated with pet ownership.
