This St. Louis company ranked one of the best for pet perks

The list factored in if dogs are allowed in the office, pet time off, pet stipend and pet amenities

ST. LOUIS — Wouldn't it be great to bring your four-legged friend to work with you? One St. Louis company offers that, and they've just been named one of the best dog-friendly companies of 2021 by The Dog People.

Nestle Purina Petcare in downtown St. Louis ranks No. 8 on the list. Factors like if dogs are allowed in the building, pet time off, pet stipend and pet amenities helped decide the winners, and Nestle has them all.

According to The Dog People, Nestle Purina offers a $200 stipend when you adopt a new pet. They also give an extra day off for any pet bereavement. If Fido needs a place to go, the Nestle Purina campus downtown offers a dog park. They also hold the world record for the most pets in an office at one time, according to the list.

"A recent Rover survey reveals that 77% of American pet parents place even more importance on working for a dog-friendly company after spending so much time with their dogs during the pandemic," The Dog People wrote about this list. "Being 'dog friendly' means a lot more than just allowing dogs in the office nowadays—especially considering that so many people now work remotely."

Amazon took the No. 1 spot on the list. The company also has an on-campus dog park and offers discounted pet insurance. Athenahealth, Trupanion, Kinship and PetDesk round out the top five.
