Celebrity Pets And Their Famous Parents



Let’s be honest; we don’t know how we could survive without our pets. They’re cute, they’re cuddly, and they’re the companions we need to go about our daily lives. Of course, we’re not the only people who have pets, as some of the biggest names in Hollywood also have pooches, kittens, and even pigs to their names!
These celebrity pets get to live their lives with actors, singers, television hosts, and famous legends by their side – and we don’t know whether to be totally jealous of them or not. After all, these celebrity pets and their owners are pretty awesome.

Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year or so, you’ll know that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are one of the cutest couples on the block. Since getting hitched, they have won us all over with their adorable lives – and their lives became even more adorable in 2019 when Priyanka decided to surprise her hubby with a puppy! They are now the proud owners of a cute German shepherd by the name of Gino, and it’s safe to say that they’re in love with him. Priyanka also has a dog, and we bet they’re best friends.

Demi Lovato

Over the course of her career, Demi Lovato has made no secret of the fact that she loves animals. After all, she has loads of animals tattooed on her body! Although she has a space in her heart for all of the animals in the world, the biggest spaces are reserved for her two pooches, Cinderella and Batman. Aside from their awesome names, it seems as though these two dogs also double up as security for the singer. Yes, they stopped a burglar from entering Demi’s home back in July 2017, which means they deserve some serious treats.

Camila Mendes

Known for her role in the epic teen drama, Riverdale, there’s no doubt about the fact that Camila has captivated us while on the screens. However, it’s safe to say that her adorable dog has also won us over – because just look at him! The little guy on the left is a Maltipoo called Truffle, which Camila adopted from a Los Angeles rescue center in November 2019. Camila was immediately bowled over by her new pup, and she couldn’t wait to introduce him to her family’s German shepherd coonhound dog called Zix.

Zac Efron

Zac Efron has won over the hearts of men and women across the world thanks to his acting ability, his singing ability, and the fact that he’s pretty easy on the eyes. But did you know that he’s also pretty selfless when it comes to animals? When the actor learned that a dog at a Los Angeles pet shop was going to be euthanized, he knew that he had to step in. He offered to foster the dog for a while, but it seems as though he just couldn’t say goodbye to her. So, he adopted her!

Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner is a huge name in the celebrity world, and most people can name a huge number of her movies. What some people don’t know about this actress, though, is that she’s definitely an animal person. Not only does she have an adorable golden retriever by the name of Birdie, but she also has her very own ant farm in her kitchen. As if that wasn’t enough, Garner and her kids have a real soft spot for their cat, and they often take it out for walks in a stroller. You know, as you do.

Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne is one of the biggest names in the celebrity world, and it seems as though there’s nothing she can’t do. She’s a model, she’s an actress, she’s a singer, and it seems as though she’s also a lover of animals. While self-isolating in March 2020, Cara and her girlfriend Ashley Benson decided to help out the local animal shelters who were struggling with the number of animals in their care. So, they opted to foster two adorable puppies by the name of Bowie and Hendrix until they can find a forever home when quarantine comes to an end.

Jennifer Aniston

She may be one of the busiest actresses in the business, but that doesn’t stop Jennifer Aniston from spending some quality time with her pooches. As the proud owner of two dogs, Sophie and Clyde, Jennifer regularly posts photographs of them on her brand-spanking-new Instagram account. This particular photo shows Jennifer posing with Clyde, who she calls a “Girl’s best friend.” She often takes her dogs to work with her, so we can only imagine the things they have seen and the people they have met over the years. Those are some famous dogs.

Reese Witherspoon

There’s no doubt about the fact that Reese Witherspoon will always be remembered as Elle Woods, and as any Legally Blonde fan will know, Elle wouldn’t be complete without Bruiser by her side. It seems as though the same can be said for Reese herself, as this actress has welcomed countless dogs into her home over the years. Witherspoon and her family currently have three pooches running around their homes, including a chocolate labrador called Hank, a bull terrier that goes by the name of Lou, and an adorable French bulldog called Pepper.

Taylor Swift

Even those who aren’t a fan of Taylor Swift’s music will know that she is one of the biggest cat lovers out there. She has made no secret of the fact that she just can’t get enough of these adorable fluff balls, and so it should come as no surprise to learn that she has a few of them in her house. Long term fans of this superstar will know that Meredith and Olivia have been in her family for a few years now, but her newest addition, Benjamin Button, is more of an enigma. Yet, she thinks they are purrrfect.

Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner

It seems as though the Jonas Brothers have been pretty lucky in terms of their wives, as Joe has also managed to bag himself a wife who absolutely adores dogs. As lovers of huskies, the couple welcomed two adorable puppies called Waldo and Porky into their lives a few years ago. They were the perfect pairing, but Sophie and Joe found themselves in a position no pet owner wants to find themselves in when they learned that Waldo had passed away after being hit by a car in 2019. To commemorate their beautiful pup, they got matching tattoos of Waldo.

Hilary Duff

Most people probably remember Hilary Duff as the young child star who played Lizzie McGuire, but this child star has since grown up, become a mother, got married, and welcomed dogs into her home. Hilary has loved dogs since she was younger, and she has owned a few over the years. However, after losing her beloved Bernese mountain dog in 2018, Duff and husband Matthew Koma decided to adopt a bandana-wearing doggo by the name of Lucy. This dog now gets to hang out with Duff’s other dogs, a French bulldog called Peaches, and a rescue dog called Momo.

Victoria Beckham

If you follow Victoria Beckham on social media, you’ll have a hard time trying to find photos of their pooches. However, it seems as though the Beckhams love to spoil their dogs behind the scenes, and they just can’t get enough of their canine love. Over the years, the Beckham family has added various new additions into their lives, and in 2019 Victoria and David decided to surprise their daughter, Harper, with a new puppy called Sage. Let’s just hope that Sage gets on with their other dogs, Fig and Olive.

Ellen DeGeneres

With dreams of becoming a veterinarian when she was younger, Ellen DeGeneres has been obsessed with animals from a young age. So, we probably don’t need to tell you that her house is full of animals. As someone who prefers to adopt rather than shop, Ellen and her wife have welcomed countless rescue animals over the years. Not only do they have three cats, but they also have four dogs called Wolf, Augie, Kid, Mrs. Wallis. All of them have been adopted, and it seems as though they all can’t get enough of the comfort of her home.

Vanilla Ice

While most celebrities welcome the likes of cats and dogs into their home, it seems as though Vanilla Ice didn’t want to stick to the norm when it came to his pets. Vanilla Ice has essentially turned his backyard into a zoo over the years, and he’s now the proud owner of a pet goat and a pet wallaroo. As a mix between a wallaby and a kangaroo, this animal isn’t exactly one of the most common animals on the planet – which makes it even cooler. Unfortunately, his wallaroo has tried to escape a few times.

Tom Hardy

Over the course of his career, Tom Hardy has won countless fans over with his acting talent and his hunky looks, but it seems as though most people have fallen in love with him thanks to his unwavering love for dogs. Most people know his beloved former dog, Woodstock, as these two were inseparable from the moment they met. Tom took him to movie sets, he walked him along red carpets, and he showered him with love on social media. Sadly, Woodstock passed away in 2018, and Tom has since welcomed another pooch into his life.

Lea Michele

Most people know Lea Michele for her all-singing and all-dancing role in Glee, but it seems as though her most loyal fans also know her as the ultimate pet mom. Over the course of her career, Lea has welcomed cats and dogs into her home, and all of them seem to have stolen her heart. First and foremost, she has always been a cat person, and she once even saved six abandoned kittens on the Paramount Studios lot! She has two cats named Sheila and Claude, and she has an adorable Pomeranian dog called Pearl.

Miley Cyrus

Although there’s no doubt about the fact that Miley Cyrus is a talented singer and actress, it seems as though more and more people are recognizing her for her love of animals. After all, she’s a devout vegan, she’s always ready to defend the life of any creature, and she has essentially opened up her own free-range zoo in her yard! Yes, Miley has loads of animals, and she loves to surround herself with furry creatures. Currently, the singer has a whopping nine dogs to her name, three cats, and an adorable pig.

Camila Morrone

While most people know Camila Morrone for her work as a model, it seems as though the fact that she’s currently dating Leonardo DiCaprio has also peaked people’s interest in her. Because of this, she has used her platform during lockdown in 2020 to encourage people to foster animals. While it’s not known whether she is self-isolating with Leo by her side, we do know that she is isolating with a husky that she decided to foster. We kinda hope that she’ll decide to adopt it once this is all said and done.

Kim Kardashian

The Kardashian family has often been called out in the past for their treatment of animals and the fact that they seem to buy new dogs every single year, but it seems as though Kim and Kourtney’s Pomeranian puppies are here to stay. The two Kardashian sisters bought the adorable pooches for their daughters, North and Penelope, and they decided to call them Sushi and Honey. The dogs have even made their way onto their famous reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which means that they must be in Kim’s good books.

Nicolas Cage

If you’re familiar with the life and times of Nicolas Cage, you’ll know that this actor doesn’t really like to play by the rules. This man likes to stay away from convention when it comes to his acting roles and his personal life – and it seems as though that also extends to his pet purchases. Although he no longer has them, Cage has bought some rather strange animals in the past. He once bought a pet octopus for a whopping $150,000, and that’s before you even mention the two albino king cobras that he decided to call Moby and Sheba.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande may be one of the biggest singers in the world, but that doesn’t mean that she stays out partying and schmoozing with other celebs. In fact, she much prefers to go back home to her friends and her dogs – and she definitely has a lot of them. With ten dogs to her name, there’s no doubt about the fact that Ariana has her hands pretty full, but it seems as though she wouldn’t have it any other way. She loves her rescue dogs, and Lily, Snape, Toulouse, Coco, Myron, Pignoli, Fawkes, Sirius, and Lafayette are extremely well looked after.

Josh Gad

Most people know Josh Gad for his role in musical theater or as Olaf in the Frozen franchise, but some of his fans don’t know just how much he loves dogs. This actor and singer has been a huge lover of dogs for most of his life, and he said that he was shocked and saddened after a movie that he worked on – called “A Dog’s Purpose” – came under fire for the abuse of dogs. As a pooch owner himself, Josh and his family want to shower these babies with as much love as possible.

Amanda Seyfried

After growing up with dogs by her side, Amanda Seyfried knew that she wanted to continue the trend as she got older. So, she is now a proud owner of a rescue dog by the name of Finn – and it seems as though he is now a celebrity in his own right. Amanda calls herself his “stage mother,” after the two of them collaborated together to work on the Best Friends Animal Society’s Save Them All campaign. Finn appeared in various television adverts, he took part in photoshoots, and it’s fair to say that the whole world loves him.

Dakota Johnson

If you’re familiar with Dakota Johnson’s family tree, you may know that her mother and grandmother, Melanie Griffith and Tippi Hedren, are both keen animal rights activists. They’re both incredibly famous because Tippi used to share her house with big cats such as lions and tigers – and even Melanie herself embraced these animals as a child. It’s safe to say that Dakota hasn’t gone so extreme with her love of animals, but she is madly in love with her dog, a Jack Russell terrier and schnauzer mix. In her words, he’s a “Mixture of heaven.”

Paris Hilton

Since making her way into the limelight, Paris Hilton has made no secret of the fact that she is utterly obsessed with dogs. When she first stole the show, everyone knew her pet chihuahua, Tinkerbell, and she was just as famous as her heiress owner. However, Tinkerbell has since sadly passed away, and Paris has since welcomed loads of new dogs into her home. It’s believed that she now has around eight dogs to her name, and they all have their own $325,000 mini-mansion to live in. No, we’re not joking. It even has a chandelier and air conditioning!

Kaley Cuoco

Since The Big Bang Theory came to an end, it seems as though Kaley Cuoco has even more time on her hands – but we know just how she keeps busy. That’s because Kaley is a keen animal lover and has welcomed countless different animals into her home and yard over the years. Not only does she have five dogs, but they also have a pet goat, a bunny rabbit, and a whole stable full of horses. As her husband is an equestrian, these horses definitely make sense, but Kaley has also bought an adorable mini horse to even things out.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Let’s be honest; Leonardo DiCaprio is a huge name within the world of acting, but he’s also a huge name in the world of activism. As someone who has spent a large amount of time and money campaigning for environmental issues and animals, it should probably come as no surprise to learn that he has a few animals of his own. However, these aren’t ordinary animals. In 2010, Leonardo decided to open up his home – well, backyard – to a 10-year-old African spurred tortoise. These animals live for around 80 years, and they can get pretty heavy…

Rachael Ray

Although there’s no doubt about the fact that Rachael Ray is extremely famous for her work as a celebrity chef, she’s also pretty famous for being a huge dog lover. To be exact, she has a soft spot in her heart for the pit bull dog breed – and she has campaigned tirelessly to change their reputation over the years. As if that wasn’t enough, she has also created her own line of dog food! Rachael used to have two pit bulls of her own, but sadly one passed away in 2004. Now, Isaboo gets all of her love and attention.

Brittany Snow & Tyler Stanaland

If you’ve been keeping up with the celebrity news, you’ll know that Brittany Snow and Tyler Stanaland have recently got hitched, and it seems as though they are enjoying newlywed life with a new pooch by their side. Brittany was already the proud owner of a dog before her new husband came along, but they have since decided to foster another adorable dog during the quarantine lockdown to ensure that one less dog sits in a rescue shelter awaiting a proper home – even if it’s just temporary. They look like naturals, don’t they?

Kaia Gerber

As the daughter of a legend, we always knew that Kaia Gerber would follow in her mother’s footsteps – and it seems as though she has definitely done so when it comes to her love of animals. While she doesn’t have her own pooches every day of the year, Kaia decided during the lockdown to foster two puppies! When Kaia made her way to the rescue center to choose which dog to foster, she stumbled across two brothers, and she knew that she couldn’t split them up. So, she opted for both of them instead.

Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale is known for being extremely talented and extremely beautiful, but it seems as though we also have to congratulate her on raising an adorable pooch. Lucy is the proud owner of Elvis the dog, and those who follow her on social media will know that Elvis has become famous in his own right. She has noted that she is “obsessed” with her dog and that this has spurred her on to work with some of the biggest animal charities and organizations in the world, as she wants to protect as many of them as possible.

Kirstie Alley

Kirstie Alley may no longer be as famous as she once was, but it’s fair to say that most people still remember her for her strange choice in pets. That’s because Kirstie has been obsessed with lemurs for decades, and she currently owns around 14 of them that live within their very own enclosure in her backyard. Kirstie started off with just one lemur because she wanted to learn more about them and conservation efforts in Madagascar, and she soon grew to love them. She has since welcomed more into her home, and she also works with these conservation charities.

Katy Perry

You don’t need to look too hard to realize that Katy Perry has a dog, and she’s completely in love with her. The singer takes her toy poodle pooch to photoshoots, she allows Nugget to judge on American Idol with her, she appears in Katy’s music videos, and she has even starred in a national ad campaign. Yes, it seems as though this tiny, fluffy dog has stolen the show, and while she probably won’t be able to reach the fame that her mother possesses, Nugget is already pretty well-known.


If you’re familiar with Kesha’s social media accounts, there’s a high chance that you’re also pretty familiar with her cats. After all, she’s completely and utterly in love with them, and she just loves to show them off to the world. This singer has got some pretty huge cats, and they are called Charlie, Queso, and Mr. Peeps. The latter is a rescue cat that was found mewing around a garage, and she has since given him a pretty amazing life. She is certainly a cat lady, and she seems pretty pleased about it, too.

Justin Bieber & Hailey Baldwin

Although it may have happened before we even realized what was going on, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are now husband and wife, and they have since proven to the world that they are totally adorable. In late 2018, they decided to make their family even bigger by adding their “dogson” into the mix, and they soon showcased Oscar to the world. While they have since come under fire for some of their treatment of their pup, it seems as though they want to make Oscar’s life as happy as possible.

Hugh Jackman

Everyone knows who Hugh Jackman is, right? This Hollywood hunk has been in the business for decades, and it just seems as though he’s getting better and better with age. If you didn’t love him already, what if we told you that Wolverine also has a soft spot for dogs? Hugh makes no secret of the fact that he is utterly obsessed with his two dogs, and it’s not hard to see why that’s the case. Allegra is a small poodle mix, and Dali is a French bulldog, and everything about this picture is as cute as a button.

Jennifer Lawrence

Anyone who knows Jennifer Lawrence will not only know that she’s a hugely talented actress, but they’ll also know that she’s also pretty hilarious. This can be seen in the name that she chose for her dog, Pippi Lawrence-Stocking. Yes, that really is her name! Lawrence has proved over the years that she’s extremely protective over her dog, and she has even gone so far as to say that she’s “crazy” about her dog. To showcase this love, Jennifer even had an acrylic painting of Pippi commissioned to sit above her fireplace.

Chrissy Teigen & John Legend

Let’s be honest; Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are the coolest couple around, and we love nothing more than keeping up with their lives through Chrissy’s informative and hilarious social media posts. The couple has welcomed countless dogs into their lives over the years, and there’s no doubt about the fact that the world has been able to watch them grow up through Instagram. There’s Paul the bulldog, who’s dopey and intuitive. Then, there’s the newest addition, Petey the rescue poodle, who seems to be getting bigger and bigger by the day.

Kristen Bell

If you don’t think that Kristen Bell is one of the coolest kids around, then you seriously need to start following her on Instagram. Not only is she incredibly funny and talented, but Kristen has also made sure to use her platform to help others – and also inspire others to help animals. Kristen and her family do just that by adding rescue dogs to their house on a regular basis, and Kristen was even gifted with a rescue dog after a rather passionate argument with her husband! They just love to adopt the dogs that are in most need.

Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson

Although they may no longer be together, there’s no doubt about the fact that most people will remember the animal that Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson raised while they were together. After all, not many people choose to have a pet pig. The couple decided to name their adorable piglet Piggy Smallz, and fans were amazed when they learned that their pet slept in a baby’s crib when it was time for bed. Since they broke up, Ariana Grande has retained custody of Piggy Smallz, and it’s not known whether Pete ever sees it.


As one of the leading men in Guns N’ Roses, it’s fair to say that Slash is the ultimate rock and roller. He’s also an animal lover, but he couldn’t just buy a cat or dog and be done with it. Instead, Slash decided to ignite a passion for snakes and everything slithery, and that’s how he became the proud owner of numerous pythons. He once had cages strewn around his house and owned some of the biggest snakes that some people could even comprehend. However, it’s been noted that he has since given them up.

Christina Hendricks

It’s hard to understand why some people don’t like dogs, but you’ll be happy to know that Christina Hendricks isn’t one of them. When Christina and her husband tied the knot in 2009, they agreed that they weren’t the kind of couple who would bring children into the world – but they were going to become dog parents. They now have two cockapoos to their name, and they decided to call them Zou Zou and Triscuit. We have to say that Christina looks pretty stylish when she walks the dog!

Vanessa Hudgens

Whether you know her for her role in High School Musical, as the Coachella queen, or whether you just know her because she’s pretty beautiful and pretty talented, there’s no doubt about the fact that Vanessa Hudgens is a big deal. It seems as though this leading lady also thinks animals are a big deal, and she has made sure to give her dog the best life possible. Little Darla is a mix breed poodle, and Vanessa loves nothing more than taking her for a walk or taking her onto the set of her new movie.

Seth Rogen

Many people believe Seth Rogen to be a tough funnyman in Hollywood, but anyone who follows his social media accounts will know that he’s pretty soft – and that he’s got a major soft spot for his pooch. Seth welcomed his beloved cavalier king Charles spaniel years ago, and she has since become famous in her own right because she is just so darn cute. It seems as though Seth seems to think so as well, and he even made sure that she was standing pride of place on the cover of GQ with him in 2019.

George Clooney

George Clooney is talented in so many different ways, and while there are many people out there who love him for his looks, his charm, or his acting talent, there are others who love him for his ability to love the strangest animals. Although George’s beloved pet passed away in 2006, the world still remembers when George Clooney had a pot-bellied pig as his pet for a whopping 18 years. It’s been noted that the pig would sleep in George’s bed, and the actor would dedicate every spare moment of his day to looking after it.

Hayley Williams

Known for her role as lead singer in Paramore and her work as a solo artist, Hayley Williams has stolen the show and the hearts of her fans with her punk rock look and her punk rock attitude. However, it seems as though there is a soft side to this singer, and she credits her dog for keeping her healthy and happy throughout her life. She has even gone so far as to say that her dog “is the reason why I’m alive,” especially after dealing with mental health struggles over the years. She just loves her pooch.

Julianne Hough

Known for her acting and dancing skills, everyone knows who Julianne Hough is – and those who follow her on social media will also know who her former dogs are. Julianne was once the proud owner of two adorable cavalier king Charles spaniels called Lexi and Harley, but she found herself in a devastating situation in 2019. That’s because Hough lost both of her dogs on the same day as each other, and she made no secret of the fact that it broke her heart to say goodbye to them.

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria may be known for her fiery acting talent and her strong will, but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have a passionate heart. Over the course of her career, Eva made sure that she had dogs by her side, and in 2003 she welcomed a dog named Jinxy into her life. When Jinxy passed away in 2018, Eva was beside herself with grief. However, she has tried to keep herself as optimistic as possible, especially as she also has an adorable French Bulldog to her name. Isn’t Popeye cute?

Justin Bieber

Over the course of his life in the limelight, Justin Bieber has come under fire for many reasons. While nobody can deny that he has a love for animals, his decision to buy a capuchin monkey back in 2013 didn’t go down very well with fans and animal activists. One of the main reasons for this was because the monkey was actually bought illegally to be sold to the singer, and the monkey was only a baby when he went into Justin’s care. It was later taken in by the authorities, and it now lives in a zoo in Germany.

Martha Stewart

Whether you know her for her personal struggles or her cooking talent, there’s no doubt about the fact that Martha Stewart is still America’s sweetheart. She puts a smile on many people’s faces, and it seems as though she also has a lot of love to give her animals. As a lover of all animals, Martha has opened up her home to countless dogs, cats, and a whole plethora of other living beings. In fact, she also has canary birds, chinchillas, chickens, cows, geese, peacocks, donkeys, pigeons, and horses! Her home is just one giant farm.
