It can be difficult to decide just what to buy for your pets, we know. From everyday toys and tools to accessories just for special occasions, each item is a chance to show some personality and flair. We currently have two cats living (mostly sleeping) in the queerdeer office who have inspired us to do some research into queer and LGBT-related pet products. We decided to compile a list of some of our favourite pet swag in the hopes of inspiring you and your pets to show your pride.
If you’ve just gotten a new kitten, or if your dog has worn out some well-used old favourites, take a look at our list of picks to put some more pride in your pet! These items are sure to brighten you and your pet’s day whether you’re looking for something functional, fashionable, or just plain fun!

It’s 1″ thick and features same sex union symbols as well as the four letters that bring our community together. The collar also has an easy to use clip fastener and can be resized between 10-18″.
For the cats and younger pups, this rainbow collar will fit their smaller builds with an easy to use Velcro fastener and chrome D ring. Easy to fit to your pet’s comfort, and perfect for both of you to show your pride!

LGBT / Rainbow Apparel & Trinkets
Haven’t got your pet an ID tag yet? Just send in your pet’s information to be added on the back, and this will show off your pride and keep your pet safe! If you’re not sold on this particular design, they have hundreds more to choose from! They come in small (7/8″) and large (1.25″) sizes.
Bowties have been making a come back, and here’s one your furry companion can wear if they need to look good for a special occasion. It slides right onto the pet’s collar so no need to fuss with knots or strings! Comes in small and large sizes.
This vibrant accessory will make your pet stand out in a crowd for sure. The bandana has been treated to prevent the edges from fraying, which could be handy if you have a pet who likes to play a little rough. Tie it loose or tight – either way they’ll stay looking sharp at all times.
Thought the “I Have 2 Mommies” onesie was cute on babies? You’ll love one of these bandanas for your dog, available in medium or large sizes.
Winter is coming and some dogs just need that extra layer to keep from shivering. With this comfy tank top, passers-by will know your dog has two mommies who care about keeping them warm. Comes in 4 sizes, for pets up to 30 lbs.
Our newest cat Beau is currently sporting a cute bandana around his neck (against his will). Pick up one of these cozy creations and your pet will be snug as a bug while they pee on your rug. There are two sizes to choose from, and it comes with a delightful rainbow squeak toy that dogs will love!
A dog’s gotta do their business, and in the winter that means both of you will be braving the elements. There are 4 sizes to choose from, and the stretch rib knit fabric will fit snugly to different breeds, so your pup can keep dropping heat without getting cold!
LGBT / Rainbow Toys
Our cat Walker absolutely loves catnip, which we treat him to when he’s on his best behaviour. This rainbow toy is filled with organically grown catnip, and if your cat is anything like ours they will go wild for it!
Our cats can’t get enough of chasing cat charmers, so it’s a favourite toy in our household. This rainbow-designed one will catch your cat’s eye and get them up and playing with you or your kids for hours. Durable and non-toxic, this is a great investment for those of you who like to spend quality time playing with your cats.
Love your dog but hate your downstairs neighbour? This package is great even if you don’t have a pet! Show your pride during some outdoor play when going to the park or playing tennis with all six colours of the rainbow. This is a great buy for owners who like to be active along with their dogs.
Another great toy even if you don’t have a pet. Grriggles is an adorable rainbow-coloured play toy that your pet can chew on and sleep with for some extra comfort. Perfect for your pets to snuggle when you’re not home, or for those long car rides to the vet or out of town.
