Love Your Pets!: Barking Up the Right Tree

We just wanted to see a few fluffy pups, you sent us an overwhelming deluge of cuteness.

February 12, 2019
A few weeks ago we asked you to send in pictures of your pets. The idea was that we’d gather a few cute snapshots of our best friends and then post them for all to see.
Well, it turns out Toyota team members are super into showing off their pets. Overall, we got more than 250 submissions, with a few more coming in every day. It was mostly dogs, with a few cats here and there. But we even got one goat.

We shouldn't have been surprised, considering Toyota has a pet-loving Business Partnering Group called Toyopets. If you want information, email
Unfortunately, we’re gonna have to stop taking pet submissions for now. Turns out you can only use the “I’m spending three hours going through dog pictures for work” excuse for so long before your boss gets skeptical.
But don’t worry! We’re going to run as many pet pics as possible over the next few weeks. In fact, the first batch is below!
