    1. An elevated dog bed that's like a patio chair for your pup, because it allows for airflow to keep them cooler through these hot summer months.


    It's also loved by big dogs who get too warm in regular beds no matter what the temp!

    Promising review: "My three dogs destroy everything. I have had several beds for them and they've gone through each one no matter how well constructed or how thick the material. Even though this bed is only four metal rods, four metal legs, and like a tight mesh material, so far so good. They use them, they like them, and two weeks later they are both in one piece. The beds are somewhat like cots, they have give when walked on but not too much give that the dogs bounce on it like a trampoline. I would recommend this bed if others have failed. So far so good! It is reasonable as far as dog beds go and if it lasts it is worth every penny!" β€”TJ12182010

    Get it from Walmart for $22.30+, even the large size. (Four sizes available in three to six colors, depending on the size.)

    2. A litter box perfect for kitties that like to dig, because it comes complete with a shield that will block at least some of the mess, and a scoop that clips right on the side of the shield.


    Promising review: "This is the best litter pan and I love the scoop is included. I have some vigorous diggers and this helps containment issues plus because the scoop is flat at the outer edge, it keeps clumps whole when I'm dipping them out. I am the crazy cat lady and I have eight of these for my own animals and my fosters." β€”Karon C

    Get it from Walmart for $8.69.

    3. A bunch of Spongebob-themed aquarium decorations so all your fish can finally live their best life in Bikini Bottom, making Krabby Patties and blowing bubbles in Jellyfish fields.


    There's not a landing page for all of them, but check out "Customers Also Considered" on any of the product pages for more options!

    Get them from Walmart: $7.65 for the Krusty Krab and $9.98 for Spongebob's Pineapple.

    4. A waterproof, tear-proof seat cover β€” your car will stay perfectly clean even when your favorite weekend hiking trail turns out to be unexpectedly muddy.


    You'll even be able to set it up quickly, thanks to the adjustable Velcro straps.

    Promising reviews: "Well constructed product. Fits my SUV back seat and saves me cleaning up the back when my dog is with me." β€”Gift r

    "Seat cover easy to install. Dog does not even notice the cover. Catches all the dirt and dog hair. Don't have to worry about paws tearing leather seats." β€”JCWIII

    Get it from Walmart for $19.90.

    5. A cat toy variety pack sure to have something special for even the pickiest feline: you get six jingly balls, three pom poms, two mice, one fish with catnip, and one play wand.


    Promising review: "This is a great assortment of toys! My five kittens just LOVE them!!! There are several sturdy balls with bells in them that they like to pick up with their claws and toss. The cat nip fish is a smash hit. I'll have to buy another bag just for that alone as everybody wants to have it at the same time, lol.... Really, though, the fluffy little balls are the best!!! They are shiny and soft, and my kittens spend hours pushing them around the floor and playing. They are highly recommended for cats of every age." β€”LOVEmyFIVEkittens

    Get it from Walmart for $3.97.

    6. A set of three faux aquarium plants that, once they're in the water, are so lifelike you won't be able to tell them apart from the real thing.


    They come with weighted ceramic bases so they don't float away!

    Promising review: "I got this for my three fish and they've lasted really long! I've had them since around 2014 and they are fine! They look like real plants and my fish love them!" β€”Hannah

    Get it from Walmart for $4.44.

    7. A cat tent where your kitteh can comfortably hide out when strangers first come over, until they're lured out by the attached dangly feather toy.


    Get it from Walmart for $8.23.

    8. An set of elevated dog bowls because eating will just be more comfortable for your medium or large dog if they don't have to bend down quite so far to get to their food.


    Promising review: "I purchased this for my Rottweiler. It's a simple yet durable feeding station. Be *absolutely positive* you buy the correct size. They take up a LOT of space compared to a normal bowl. I love the fact that I can screw in any two-liter bottle into the water side (remove the bowl first) so I'm not filling it as often. I replace the two-liter every time I get a new one so it doesn't grow bacteria to be safe." β€”Ranger187

    Get it from Walmart for $11.04+ (available in 8-inch or 12-inch heights).

    9. A little basket toy so your small birdie has an interesting new place to roost, nest, and swing 'till their heart's content.


    Promising review: "My Green Cheek Conure was so excited when he saw this! I throw treats in it and he sticks his head in there and grabs them. He hasn't got all the way in yet but he plays with the rings. Nice size for Mr Bubbles! If he's happy I'm happy. Thank you!" β€”Jackie

    Get it from Walmart for $7.99.

    10. A pack of three squishy squeaky toys that small- and medium-sized pups go absolutely gaga over.


    Promising review: "I got turned on to these from a group I met at our local dog park. The dogs just LOVE them! They have very high squeak-ability and are super soft." β€”SLB

    Get the pack of three from Walmart for $2.72.

    11. An adorable mouse-shaped laser pointer ideal for both helping your kitty get all the exercise they need and making you and everyone who watches your Instagram stories belly laugh.


    Promising review: "The low price made me wonder how well this would work, but it is excellent! The light is bright enough to attract our cats even in a sunlit room, and they can't resist chasing it. It comes with batteries too, so works right out of the package. A great way to entertain the kitties and family alike." β€”weaver1

    Get it from Walmart for $3.97.

    12. A heavy-duty bacon-scented chew toy so your pupper can expend some of their excess energy *and* clean their teeth at the exact same time.


    Promising review: "My dog loves this chew bone. It's one of the only chew bones impervious to being destroyed! I'm always looking for toys that they can't destroy the first day. This toy lasts and lasts." β€”Ladyvet

    Get it from Walmart for $2.83+ (available in small and large).

    13. A hunting box your cat will immediately be obsessed with because it comes with three balls with bells that their instincts will tell them to CATCH!


    Promising review: "My 15 year old cat loves it, as she has been an in/outdoor cat since she found me and I adopted her in 2008. Now that we've moved to an indoor condo on the 6th floor, she loves this toy, and forces the balls out of the box. At her age, it exhausts her. But then I have to go find the balls." β€” mathieuj

    Get it from Walmart for $8.54.

    14. A ten pound box of Milkbones with over 100 treats because nothing makes your doggie happier than hearing you tell them how good they are while you feed them one of these.


    Promising review: "My GSD would only eat these if I let him... which I don't. He tries to get me to go to the box by barking, faking a limp, crying, etc. and he provides such entertainment as he tries to manipulate me to give him more." β€”angmay

    Get it from Walmart for $11.93.

    15. And an airtight pet food container and treats box so their food stays fresh and you can easily scoop it out... even when your two dogs are zooming around you because OMG mom dinner time is the BEST!


    The top container holds up to 10 pounds, and the bottom up to 25 pounds.

    Promising review: "Finally, we are organized. No more large bags of cat and dog food in our laundry room. Our laundry room is small so having the wheels on these is wonderful. We just roll them out of the way. The lids flip open one way which is nice for spooning out food. We use the smaller container to store dog bones. I like that the container sits on top for easy removal, but never slides off. Best money spent in a while." β€”kytrailhiker

    Get it from Walmart for $22.99.

    16. A kitty teasing wand that features little electronic mouse squeaks every single time it moves β€” plus lights that flash β€” so it's pretty much guaranteed that your cat will start to beg for it every single day.


    Promising reviews: "I bought mine for a ferret! Ferrets love these kind of toys, too, and this little guy gets plenty of fun out of playing with this teaser toy, whether playing with me or by himself!" β€”FuzzyFerret

    "My Savannah cat just adores this. We have replaced it maybe five times already because he is a killing machine. This one seems to hold out longer than some of the others, but by day five, the elastic begins to stretch out, and somewhere within three weeks, the eyes light up haphazardly. Even so, he continues to want this toy more than the others. After two months, I will sew up the little mouse, preventing the wires from being exposed. At about six months, I usually give in and un-stuff the poor thing, removing all dangerous pieces because there are too many holes in it to sew again. Even so β€” this is the toy he begs for. So we play with the sad looking thing until there is nothing left of it, and then replace it once we find a new one in stock somewhere." β€” 5Katlover

    Get it from Walmart for $1.56.

    17. A 1.5-gallon fish tank starter kit so you can give that betta fish you won at the fair a happier and more fulfilling life than they'd have in just a bowl.


    It comes with the tank, a quiet three-stage filtration system (and extra filter cartridges), a low-volt LED light you can adjust with red or blue lenses, and a drawer you can use to store fish food and other supplies.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my granddaughter, who won a goldfish at a school carnival. She loves caring for Goldie, who was housed just in a small bowl with no filter. Now in her new Tetra Aquarium, Goldie is happily swimming in clear water, and my granddaughter has more time to enjoy watching Goldie instead of cleaning up after her β€” feeding time is easy β€” and the lighted cube shape makes Goldie' s new home a showroom." β€”DGrandma

    Get it from Walmart for $19.98.

    18. A pack of seven dog toys that come in their very own cute little fabric storage bin. Even if you can't really trust your dogs to regularly put their things away, at least you will have a designated spot to drop 'em off.


    It comes with the fabric bin, three plush toys, a pack of three balls, and a rope toy. The pot says "I never met a toy I didn't bite", lol.

    Promising review: "I have had this product ever since I got my pup in July. I keep this on top of his kennel with all of his toys, treats, puppy bags and his leash. The cat really enjoys it tooβ€”she likes dumping everything out and napping in it! The saying on it is super cute and my fellow dog owners always ask me where they can find one. Super easy to just throw everything into and put it out of the way. Toby surprisingly hasn't torn up the toys inside either!" β€”Kate

    Get it from Walmart for $19.99.

    19. An oversized, 20-pound jug of scoopable, clumping cat litter β€” it contains natural bentonite clay to control odor, and is 99% dust-free. An easy-to-clean litter box means happy cats and happy you!


    Promising review: "It clumps. With five cats I need three things from litter: 1. Cheap 2. Large quantities 3. Clumping. This does the job. While one demon still kicks some litter out, this works just as well as the Fresh Step Multi Cat I had been using β€” I honestly don't see any difference β€” and I use QUITE a bit of cat litter in a week! The urine smell, with four males, is minimal. And my cat boxes are large cement mixing trays that get emptied once a day." β€”Gretch

    Get it from Walmart for $6.94 (or a 40 pound box from the same listing for $10.44).

    20. A bag of trail mix treats so you can show your hamsters, gerbils, rats, or mice that you love them in the best way they'll understand: through the gift of delectable goodies.


    Promising reviews: "My mouse looks for the package and becomes excited when she sees it. It's a healthy treat that is eagerly anticipated by pets. You can't beat the price either!" β€”NativeTexan22

    "My squirrel just loves this, she jumps around and squeaks with joy when she sees the bag." β€”sfree809

    Get a four-ounce bag from Walmart for $2.62.

    21. The Purr Pad because your cat will love how it keeps them cozy and warm, and you'll love how it captures dander, hair, and dust (so you have a little less to deal with in the rest of your home).

    The listing doesn't explicitly say that it's washable, but it's made from recyclable polyester, so I bet it holds up well.

    Promising review: "I got these for my four cats, to protect a sofa they like to lay on. Although they are very thin the cats love them β€” in fact, they laid on them rather than on me or on their beds as soon as I put them on the sofa. Normally it takes my cats a while to get used to new beds or blankets but with these they always lay straight on them even when I move them around. Since I have been using them the amount of cat hair and dander has reduced significantly around the lounge. They are also very easy to wash and dry very quickly. My only complaint is that the pads themselves do shed. They are a very good size and comfortably fit one of my large cats and one of my smaller cats on a single pad." β€”dealfindershopper

    Get a pack of two from Walmart for $13.99 (available in grey or white).

    22. And a cotton rope cat bed with a removable (and machine-washable!) fuzzy sherpa cushion so they can feel all cuddled even when your lap happens to be over by the sink washing dishes instead of where your cat likes it best: sitting on the sofa, ready for snuggles.


    Promising reviews: "Easy to clean, great for containing a catnip session. Soft and flexible." β€”susmart

    "35 year of cats and this is hands down the BEST cat bed ever. It is attractive, holds its shape and my cat absolutely loves it. The cushion has a silky side and a furry side. My girl prefers the silky side but pushes it to one side so she can feel the natural rope bed. The texture is ideal for scratching a spot to sleep and holds up to that. The material keeps her warm in winter and cool in summer. I recommend this to any cat owner." β€”Stinkykitty

    Get it on Walmart for $14.97.

    23. A completely transparent seven-inch exercise ball because it will fill your hamsters or mouses little heart with joy if they have a chance to run at full speed down your hallway.


    Because they feel like it, not because they're terrified of something, of course!

    Promising review: "Great hamster ball! Hours of fun for our little guy! And fun for the family to watch him run around in! We have a dwarf and he easily gets this moving. It is secure, yet easy for the kids to open and close the door." β€”Shoptoo

    Get it from Walmart for $6.98.

    24. A pet nail grinder so the entire process of giving your furbaby a pedicure is less stressful for everybody involved.


    It works with batteries and has an adjustable safety guard to help prevent any accidental over-grinding (and contain the filings).

    Promising review: "My chihuahua does not like anyone to touch her paws or nails. I have taken her to vets and grooming salons for nail trim and have found the workers to be too rough with her. And it costs about twenty dollars to get a good trim. So, I bought this pet nail grinder because it has a safety guard on it. Only the tip of the nail touches the grinder. I spent some time with my chihuahua to make friends with the grinder by giving her treats every time I turned it on or brought it close to her. The next day she let me grind her nails. It only takes two or three seconds per nail. Using nail clippers did not work well because I could not see where the quick was and it put me on edge because I was afraid of hurting her. I am pleased to find this product that does a good job and is reasonably priced." β€”Wyzebyze

    Get it from Walmart for $19.97.

    25. A wood rope toy designed to help stimulate medium-sized birds by encouraging them pick it, chew it, and swing all around on it.


    Promising review: "We have 12 birds in our home, eight smaller varieties and four medium-sized parrots. This toy is for medium-sized birds, but ALL of our birds love it! Our Sun Conure goes BONKERS over it, and so does our Green Cheek Conure and our Tiels. For less than $2 per toy, it's a STEAL! The only thing that I do not like about them is that the wood seems to be painted with something. Being a bird toy....the wood should not have paint on it, period." β€”Slnnger

    Get them from Walmart, $5.35 for a pack of three.

    26. A bag of paper pet bedding that will be nice and soft on your small animals paws while putting a full stop to any ammonia odors for up to 10 days.


    It works for rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats, ferrets, reptiles, or birds!

    Promising review: "I've used this brand since I got my hamster Spartacus about five months ago. He loves this bedding and will bury himself in it! It does an awesome job at both containing his odors (his cage is in the same room as me) and absorbing any mess so it's easy to clean out his cage when its time. As far as how long it lasts, I've only bought two bags of this size and I just purchased the second one a few days ago." β€”lavender0814

    Get it from Walmart for $5.32.
