We asked for your cutest pets and you delivered. More than 800 submissions from up and down New Jersey (and a few in Pennsylvania, too!)

We knew before we started that it would be absolutely impossible to actually choose the one-and-only cutest pet. Every single one of these critters is so darn cute. Which is why we had to randomly pull a winner.

First, let's take a look at some more of the submissions that we received.

Even more cutest pets in New Jersey — 2023

We asked for the cutest pets — and we got 'em! Here are some more of all the furry, scaly, feathery and wrinkly friends in the Garden State. We've announced our winner here.

So which one was it? Out of the many doggies, kitties, birdies, reptiles, rodents and little piggies, here was the winner of the $500 gift card to PetCenter Old Bridge.

Meet Arya, a wide-eyed 3-year-old domestic shorthair from Phillipsburg!
