We cherish our relationship with our pets, but it’s not always appropriate to bring them wherever we go. A tried-and-true way to keep the bond with our pets close to both heart and mind at all times, as well as share our love of pets with others, is with a paw print necklace.
Paw print necklaces are great gifts for pet owners who have lost beloved pets, as well as anyone who shares a special bond with his or her cat or dog and would appreciate a thoughtful gift. And because you love your pet and want everyone to know, they’re also a no-guilt gift you can feel good about giving yourself, too!
We’ve looked through countless listings and found 20 paw print necklace options that are classy, cute, charming, and sweet—just like your pet.
