To call Ree Drummond a dog lover is like saying the sky is blue and the grass is green—it's just a fact! With her beloved floppy-eared Basset Hounds as well as her lovable Labradors, Ree has a full house (not counting her kitty friends or the four-legged pals with hooves!). She even has an entire line of The Pioneer Woman dog treats that all pups across the country can enjoy.

It turns out that Ree's fellow Food Network stars have a lot in common with her in the animal department—they're also totally pet-obsessed! And we've rounded up the best photos just to prove it. These celeb chefs have big dogs, small dogs, floofy cats, and just so many animal friends to fall in love with. You might even sense a trend for a few of them—three of the chefs included have gorgeous Maine Coon cats at home!

Most of these hosts are parents to multiple pets, just like Ree. For instance, Giada De Laurentiis and Sunny Anderson both have several cat and dog fur babies at home. Others like Bobby Flay, Damaris Phillips, and Anne Burrell are total cat fanatics. Scrolling through these Food Network stars and their pets will make you want to pick up your own dog or cat and give them a big hug.
