2023 Pet of the Year banner

Does your dog stand out from the rest of the pack? Is your feline friend known for their amazing cat-itude? Perhaps your horse is ready to gallop into a new role!

We have more than 100 pets competing in a six-week fundraising competition for the title of 2023 Pet Partners Pet of the Year!

Support a Pet Candidate

This exciting six-week fundraising competition celebrates our best friends, while supporting a great cause! Funds raised by pet candidates (with help from their favorite humans) will support the Pet Partners Therapy Animal Program. This amazing program brings unconditional love, happiness, and healing to millions of seniors, patients, veterans, and children in need all around the world each year.

The national title of “Pet Partners Pet of the Year” is awarded to the pet whose fundraising team raises the most funds during the six-week competition. The winner and runner-up will be crowned at the close of the competition and awarded thousands of dollars worth of prizes* for their efforts!

*The IRS requires that we report the value of some prizes and may be considered taxable income. We encourage winners to consult with their tax advisor. 

Please note: In adherence with Pet Partners’ high standards for animal welfare and client safety, if your pet is currently participating in volunteer therapy animal visits, you must be a registered Pet Partners team.
