Just like with online grocery delivery services, there are online pet stores like Chewy that deliver everything from pet food, dog and cat toys, accessories and medication for your furry, feathered and scaly friends.

With many more people now fostering and adopting pets as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic — and trying social distance and avoid crowded stores — it’s unsurprising that these online pet food delivery options are increasingly appealing.

But welcoming a furry friend into your home, even if temporarily, can be an adjustment to your lifestyle and routine. Preparing your place with the right essentials can make for a smoother transition. Experts recommend new pet adopters and foster parents have food and water bowls, canned or dry food, a collar and lease with an ID tag, and a bed for their new four-legged friend.

Whether you’re loading up on the essentials for a new foster cat, or just want a list of online dog food delivery services to have on hand, there are plenty of options other than Amazon and Walmart to buy pet food, cat litter and more.

Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best online pet stores for dog and cat food delivery and other supplies. With some of these online pet store options, you’ll find everything from dog DNA test kits to pet-friendly CBD that will calm anxiety during fireworks and thunderstorms.

We’ve also included product offerings and pricing, so you can determine which service is best for your budget and your pet’s needs.
