"Pets always come first in everything we do, and that’s why pawternity leave is a natural step in developing our culture," said David Rönnberg, CEO of the Musti Group, in a statement. "Adopting a pet is a significant decision and changes everyday life considerably. We want to support our employees during their first days with their new family member and ensure that they can enjoy those precious moments to the fullest."
He went on to explain that the first days of acclimation for both owner and pet are an undertaking that can result in sleepless nights and stress, and that it's just as important to create a loving and attentive environment for our furry friends.
“Paying attention to a pet’s needs and spending time with them supports their learning, builds trust and helps prevent behavioral disorders in the future,” Rönnberg added.
