Instagram's Most Aww-Worthy Animals

Guys. Guys. As you may know, we launched the Adorbs Awards with the goal of finding America's cutest pet. All we were hoping for was a few hundred Instagram submissions from loving owners so our expert judges — Lil' Bub, Menswear Dog, and our own Leila Brillson — could find one outstandingly adorable animal.
Turns out, we got thousands.

So, in addition to showing off our winner, we've collected 100 cute, scrumptious pets — our personal favorites — for your viewing pleasure. Now, we know it's going to be rough on you, clicking through all this adorableness, but you can do it. We believe in you.
Jump into the slideshow for all the aww-someness and our winner. Can you even? We can't even.

And, awwwww, here's our winner! Tim Burton (yes, Tim Burton) is the last pet standing in our first annual Adorbs Awards, and, as such, is absolutely, scientifically the Cutest Pet in America. Couldn't you just eat lil' Tim up?

Not only has Tim Burton won $1,000 for his owner, Erica Tuite, but we'll be donating $1,000 to Farm Sanctuary in Tuite's name. Don't you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?

Finally, we'd just like to thank everyone who entered. Your pets may not have taken home the prize, but we know they'll always be number one in your book. Check out each and every entry on Instagram by searching #AdorbsAwards.
