2022 Winners


The votes are in! And we’re ready to raise the “ruff,” because our 2022 America’s Favorite Dog is… Willow! This fluffy Collie has more to her than meets the eye — on top of being entirely adorable, she is also the ultimate support dog. Willow’s family helps with animal rescues, so Willow also gets to be a foster sister to both dogs and cats. When she isn’t playing with new friends, Willow spends her days out and about with her mom getting lots of tummy rubs and treats.

As the 2022 Top Dog, Willow will be featured in a 2-page spread in Dogster Magazine and take home $5,000! AND, as a special treat, our amazing sponsor Crown & Paw will be gifting her with a royal portrait to celebrate. We are proud to welcome Willow to the America’s Favorite Pet fur-mily as our 2022 Favorite Dog!


Breaking mews! We’re so purr-oud to announce that our 2022 America’s Favorite Cat is… Tom! She is the paw-fect example of a cat that’s sittin’ pretty. Tom is the cutest little brown tabby that found her fur-ever home 12 years ago when her mom rescued her. Now, she has three cuddly siblings to play with and loves meeting new people!

As the 2022 Top Cat, Tom will be featured in a 2-page spread in Catster Magazine and take home $5,000! AND, as a special treat, our amazing sponsor Crown & Paw will be gifting her with a royal portrait to celebrate. We are proud to welcome Tom to the America’s Favorite Pet fur-mily as our 2022 Favorite Cat!

Lending a Paw

We are thrilled to partner with the PAWS Foundation to join in their mission to help cats, dogs, and wild animals thrive in happy, healthy homes or in their natural habitats. PAWS actively rehabilitates orphaned and injured wildlife, shelters and adopts homeless cats and dogs, and provides education and outreach within the community to promote compassionate action for animals. America’s Favorite Pet has funded the rescue and rehabilitation of over 5,300 cats and dogs to date, and helped PAWS expand their wildlife rehab programs. We remain a faithful advocate for the PAWS Foundation and are always looking for ways to grow and support this rescue mission!
