The word “influencer” probably conjures up images of a jet-setting, fashionable Instagrammer, whose picture-curated life seems like it comes straight from a Pinterest board. But really, anyone can be an influencer — even someone’s pet.
In fact, some famous pets with large followings can earn their owners as much as $15,000 for a single sponsored post.
Despite them being big business, animal influencers are also just really cute. We love when we’re scrolling through our feeds and suddenly come across a fuzz, cuddly, meowing-or-woofing friend, and that’s a big part of what makes animal influencers so popular on platforms like Instagram.
So, if your feed needs to be a little fluffier, here are 16 animal influencers you can follow.

Whether you have a pup that bolts for the front door any time it opens, or your dog just gets away from you on a walk or a trip and gets lost — it can truly happen to any dog owner. In fact, according to Lost Pet Statistics, 14 percent of all dog owners will lose their pet at least once in a five-year period.
Even though almost all of those lost dogs — 93 percent of them — end up getting found safe and sound, losing a pet is still a scary and heartbreaking experience that no pet owner wants to go through. If you want to better understand why your dog might run away and how to prevent it, this ultimate guide is for you. Plus, we’ll explain what you should do if you have a lost dog, and the one tool you need to help you reunite with your lost pup safely — and quickly.
Every year, around 3.3 million dogs enter shelter systems in the U.S.
Around half a million of those are lost dogs who get returned to their owners. About 1.6 million get adopted quickly into forever homes. But if you’re doing the math, you know that leaves more than a million dogs each year without homes. If they’re lucky, they can stay at a no-kill shelter for months or years until the right family comes along. But more often, they’re euthanized.
