If you’re thinking to adopt a dog you may feel elated with this news. But let’s first start with happy and much awaited news especially related with the expecting mothers in India. Indian Rajya Sabha, in August 2016 passed the much awaited Maternity Benefit Bill raising the  maternity benefit from 12 weeks to 8 months (approx. 26 weeks), applicable to all the companies and establishments with 10 or more people.

While we celebrated this bill, many countries across the world have gone further and started offering the one week paid Paw-ternity leaves to their employees who have brought new puppies or dogs in their family. Latest among this is Brewdog, a Scotland based brewing company with more than 1000 staff worldwide, has started offering one week fully paid leaves, called Paw-ternity leaves globally.



The whole concept of Paw-ternity leaves was started in UK with Mars Petcare was one of the first company starting offering the paid leaves to their employees, who have adopt a dog or any other pet to their family, while the IT company BitSol Solution, based out of Manchester offers three week Paw-ternity leaves to its employees.

This move by the companies is gaining overwhelming response on social media. And to cheer you guys HarperCollins Publishers India (HCI), will possibly become the first company in India to grant "pawternity leave" to its employees who for pet adoption. The employees of HCI will be entitled to a week's paid leave if they are going to adopt a dog or other type of pet.
