Love pets? Love the holidays? We've got the season's greeting card for you!

Whether you're devoted to your dog, can't wait to spoil your cat for Christmas, or have a variety of pets and just want a few days of peace, there's a pet-themed holiday card out there that's sure to make your "nice" list. And if you have some pets who are most definitely naughty? We've got that covered, too.


Hooray for the Underdog — This time of year is a great time for second chances, which makes Hooray for the Underdog a perfect place to find your cards. They feature animals who were abandoned and given a second chance at life in a wide variety of cards (like the one featured to the right) and stationary. 

Doggy Design — Looking for a dog breed-specific card? There are several to choose from at Doggy Design, like festive Labradors and Christmas-y Corgis.

2D Scrumptious — Only a real Scrooge would fail to fall in love with Stretch the Sausage Dog. Our favorite seasonal Stretch sketch is where he's wearing decorative reindeer antlers, but there are many others to choose from.

Embellish by Jackie — If simple and classic is your seasonal style, this is the shop for you. We're partial to this black dog, but you'll also find selections with cats, reindeer and more.

Furever Dachshund Rescue — You can't ever have too many Doxies, right? Not only does this shop feature Dachshund-themed cards and gifts, but all money raised goes toward helping abandoned and surrendered weiner dogs find a forever home.

Cards Direct — You didn't think we'd go without a classic cute puppy card, did you? Cards Direct has a nice selection of holiday cards featuring animals of all kinds. We just couldn't get past this cute face. Eek!

2 forks design — Contemporary, elegant, and sometimes a bit cheeky, these kitty-themed cards (like the one shown to the left) have become a few of our favorite things. 

Mad Old Cat Lady — This shop has a funny name, and many of her cards are also rather humorous. Our top pick, however, is her Cool Yule card.

design by ankepanke — Your cat loves boxes (or at least we assume she does!), and we're pretty sure you'll love this boxed set of 15 kitty cat cards in five different designs. We sure do!
