Our Mission

Wereallaboutpets.com aims to be one of the only dedicated pet news sources (news about pets–not necessarily for pets). This includes pets in the media, news-worthy events, product recalls, celebrity pets, and anything else in the news that involves pets.

We deploy a team of contributors with a wide array of backgrounds to provide expert insight (and a dose of fun) on current, in-depth content. Their backgrounds include veterinary science, pet training, pet culture journalism, journalistic research, essay writing, and biology. If you’d like to learn more about our team, please continue reading.
