2023 Winners


Let’s give a round of app-paws for the 2023 America's Favorite Dog ... Hunter! This adorable Frenchie spreads puppy love by visiting the elderly at nursing homes. When he’s not cuddling up and watching TV, Hunter enjoys chasing squirrels, playing with his cat sister, Avery, and swimming in the pool with his life jacket on. Welcome to the AFP winner’s circle, Hunter!


The cat’s out of the bag! The 2023 America’s Favorite Cat is … Oakley! This beautiful little kitty was adopted from a shelter in Florida after Hurricane Ian. He’s a sweet, cuddly boy, but he’s also a firecracker! His hobbies include attacking human feet, running around the house, and tolerating his new feline brother, Mario. Congrats, Oakley, and welcome to the AFP winner’s circle!
