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.
Hey, did you know that Ree loves dogs? 😛You're probably already familiar with all of Ree's four-legged friends—especially Walter here! With dogs, kitties, horses, and a whole lot of cattle, there is no shortage of furry friends on the ranch.
Sunny Anderson posts all about her beautiful rescue babies on her Instagram, including Pally and Milky, seen here. Pay attention for The Kitchen star's sublime #caturday posts!
Jeff Mauro is a parent to Jojo and Pinot, two mini goldendoodles. They're both clearly a huge part of the Mauro family, since they have their own Instagram account!
