From the 11th Annual Shorty Awards Best Animal

Humans’ love of animals has led to some of the internet’s most amazing moments. Thankfully, animal owners, rescuers and friends all over the world are sharing their experience with their cute companions. Some wear people clothes, some explore nature’s most majestic spots, but all of them bring something truly great to the internet.

If you’re a brand or agency doing work in this fuzzy space, consider entering your work in the Pet & Animals brand category.
