Favorite Pets


When it comes to playful pups, our 2021 America’s Favorite Dog, Raoh, is so much more than your typical stubborn Frenchie (although his paw-rents admit that’s part of his charm)! His playful and loving spirit took him to the top of his pack and earned him the esteemed title of America’s Favorite Dog. When Raoh isn’t snuggling up to his owners or watching Animal Planet, he is busy trying his “paw” at his new favorite hobby- soccer!


Not only is Cole one half of the dynamic duo, Cole and Marmalade, but he’s an incredible black cat with a fantastic story to tell! Cole was first adopted back in 2012 after being found alone and covered in fleas in the middle of a busy intersection. It was love at first sight for his owners after they saw a snapshot of a 6-week old Cole, and he has lived a wonderful life ever since. Widely-recognized as a giant snuggle bug and a clever kitty known for being a master of all things hide and seek. Now it looks like he can add America’s Favorite Cat to that resume as well!!

Helping PAWS

We also wanted to give a huge round of "apaws" to everyone involved and for the support they provided throughout the competition. Thanks to your help, America's Favorite Pet was able to donate an incredible $518,064.57 to the PAWS Foundation! Since 1967, their mission has been to help cats, dogs, and wild animals go home and thrive. PAWS actively rehabilitates orphaned and injured wildlife, shelters and adopts homeless cats and dogs, and also provides education and outreach within the community to promote compassionate action for animals.
