My Top 5 Website Picks for Pet-Parents!

By Victoria Swanson More Blogs by This AuthorFrom the Paws & Awws Blog Series

Behold! My Top 5 pet-related sites! I visit each of these on a regular basis, and I wanted to share them with all of your animal lovers out there!


Etsy offers handmade, vintage, and craft items for all kinds of pets! Who wouldn't want to have something unique, hip, and fun? How about a one-of-a-kind, special item for their beloved fur or feathered friend? Order adorable tags, bowls, handmade clothing, toy boxes, and so much more from this site! Once you tune in, you'll be browsing for hours!

Trixie and Peanut

Trixie and Peanut actually have a store in New York City, and I had the fun opportunity to visit and shop there! Because I loved it so much, when I got back home to Michigan, I continued visiting their website, and I still purchase their adorable items that are organic, gluten-free, and made in the U.S.A. They have clothes, collars, beds, harnesses, carriers, toys, and items for pet-parents too! These items are for the chic pet in your life. Who wouldn't want a little NYC fashion for their pet?


Adopt, Don't Shop is the 21st century way to welcome a pet into your family. Petfinder offers a great service to help connect homeless pets with adoptive parents, even purebreds! You simply enter in the type of pet you are looking for, the breed, age, gender, and your location. They do all the leg-work to match you as best they can with your search criteria. Then you connect with the rescue or shelter that has the pet, and voila, you may have the wonderful, loving, and selfless opportunity to become a pet-parent to one of these awesome, fun, and affectionate critters! It doesn't get better than this!

Animal Planet

Animal Planet is a well-known cable channel that focuses on animals of all sorts. Their website is just as awesome as their network, and it offers educational and entertainment videos for all kinds of animal lovers! They also have fun games, links to episodes of your favorite shows, as well as R.O.A.R, an awesome animal conservation that gives back to leading animal organizations to help empower these communities around the world. They help bring attention to wildlife conservations, habitat preservation, and so much more.


Okay, who isn't hooked on pinning?! I LOVE their animal section with cute pictures, quotes, information, and DIY projects (for pets). It's a site that you can easily get "lost" on for hours looking at all the adorable animals. So get pinning, and share with your Pinterest friends.

On a final note, check out everything the Smart Living Network has to offer!

I work for the Smart Living Network, and we offer pet-parents the opportunity to search, read, and learn about topics in regards to their pets. We even have even pet-related games and apps! It is totally awesome, and I'm not just saying that because I work here!
