Launched in 2016, TikTok rapidly gained widespread popularity and as of 2021, the app had 3.3 million downloads across all app stores.
This is demonstrated by the billions of people spending time browsing the site, looking at funny videos or cute videos of animals - the latter of which are from influencers that will feature here.

And especially for you cat owners, make sure you check our cat food reviews and best pet insurance ranking.
This pupper is a huge celebrity and not just on TikTok, holding two Guinness World Records for his speed and appearing in Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” music video. The focus of this TikTok account is solely on the little pomeranian, often showing him in cute outfits. Oh, and he only has his own day in Los Angeles – August 20th is JiffPom day.
This next account is truly magnificent - the owner makes videos of the chipmunk village he made, which inhabits 25 chipmunks, Dinky, Squishy, Mooshy, and Spongebob to name just a few. Their videos often feature one of the chipmunks' attempts to stuff an incredible amount of hazelnuts into their cheeks, such cute and wholesome content.

How much money can a chipmunk village earn you on TikTok? A lot, it seems, they earn up to an estimated $13,300 per post. Over 446, that is surely quite a lot of earnings in total. However, Brad, the account owner, puts a lot of that cash towards hazelnuts and the general care of his considerable 25 chipmunk friends.
First up for the pet with the highest engagement rate, is Tucker the golden retriever - which is no surprise, who doesn’t like cute dog videos? Cats, probably. Generally, it’s harder for an account with more followers to get good engagement rates – good falls into the range of 1-5% typically – so for this account with 10 million followers to get an engagement rate of over 4% is impressive.
Next up, we got one for the cat people, it’s Venus the two-faced cat. No, not the kind of two-faced you’re thinking, this cat has a half red tabby face and a half black face, with a green eye and a blue one. If being strikingly gorgeous wasn’t enough, this cat has appeared on The Today Show, no wonder they have a great engagement rate.
Another one for the dogs and dog-lovers out there, but also for Swaggy Wolfdogs following the “Swaggy Squad”. Having such a loyal following group is bound to be important in getting people to consistently interact and engage with the content you’re making, which is why Swaggy has a 3.16% engagement rate, which is impressive for an account with 7 million followers.
We looked at lists, such as this one from Business Insider for the most popular pet influencers on TikTok.
Once we had accrued the list of 35 influencers and their pet pals, we then used this calculator in order to get data on the following factors: followers, average hearts (likes) per post, estimated earnings per post, engagement rate and the total number of posts on each account.
We then did three rankings on the highest amount of followers, earnings and engagement rate.
