dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to examine the effect of pet ownership on self-­‐esteem, life satisfaction and loneliness in pet owners and non-­‐owners. Data was collected from 147 participants. Data was gathered by means of self-­‐reported questionnaires that assessed self-­‐esteem, life satisfaction and loneliness. An independent sample t-­‐tests showed that there was a significant difference in levels of loneliness experienced by pet owners and non-­‐owners (t (137) = -2.09, p = .038, 2-tailed). Additional t-tests showed there was no significant difference between pet owners and non-owners on levels of self-esteem and life satisfaction. A one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) showed there was no significant difference in loneliness, life satisfaction and self-esteem between owners of different types of pets.
