As Pride Month rolls around and store displays get a delightful dash of color to them, it's time once again to browse for the best (and gayest) things on offer.

Whether you’re a member of the LGBTQ+ community like me who wants an excuse to buy more Pride things, or you’re an ally who wants to show their support, there are a ton of great items out there to choose from. Here are 14 products the Reviewed staff recommends, from cute ways to dress up your favorite floof to toys and treats they’re sure to love.

This playful rainbow wave collar was designed by a disabled LGBTQ+ creator and dog mom. Its waterproof design means that it can be worn in just about any situation. Its sturdy build and size options will work for just about any dog. Buying this collar is a great way to support Pride Month by putting money directly into the pocket of someone who is LGBTQ+ themselves (and helping your dog look utterly fabulous in the process).

This clever cassette tape dog toy features the words "Gender Mix" paired with the colors of the Genderqueer Pride Flag. The shape is sure to be popular with canines who like carrying around soft toys. Plus, at such a low price tag, it's an easy "add to cart" moment for anyone making a Target run.

Give snack time extra fun with these rainbow-colored treats created for Pride Month. Your dog is sure to love the classic Milk Bone taste, and the colors will add a bright spot to any day. You can buy these treats knowing that they’ve done good, as Milk Bone made a donation to the Human Rights Campaign as part of their Pride program.

This Pride set from Walmart is the perfect way to wear your Pride gear any time all year. Put your pup in the bandana and matching leash, or just rock one at a time. The use of the Progress Flag colors, which incorporates both the transgender flag and a black and brown stripe, is a great way to show that every person under the umbrella matters, particularly those who are most vulnerable.

The Lamb Chop stuffed animal is a toy that shows up at most seasons at Petsmart and will be a familiar staple to many dog owners. This Pride-themed version is especially charming, with its rainbow hooves and ears and its rainbow heart. Keep in mind that dogs don't discriminate, so your pup won't care how cute or gay it is—it’ll still get ripped to shreds with the usual gusto.

While there are some incredible things to choose from at this shop, one of our favorites is this rainbow knitted sweater (or as the Australian-based company calls it, jumper). The playful product descriptions will likely make you smile as you choose your dog's size from "twink" to "Daddy" to "Drag Queen." 10% of sales are donated to Pride and Pet Rescue Organizations.

It's never been more important to support the transgender community, and this bowl from Mindpunch Merchandise is a great way to do so. Its pleasing design inspired by the Transgender Pride Flag will brighten up any space and act as a subtle show of support all year. Plus, with its size and material, this bowl is the perfect size to work for most dogs.

Target continues its strong support of Pride this year with the cutest pet products. This RV doubles as a scratching space and a place for cats to hide when it needs a break from the rest of the world. The little details are what makes this so charming, from the pendants with individual identity pride flags to the Progress Flag-inspired coloring of the rainbows around the RV. Pair that with a cute concept at its core (I mean, who doesn't want to get their cat their own tiny RV) and you’ve got one great Pride buy.

If your cat is anything like mine, they’re not a huge fan of wearing things. That doesn't mean that it's any less cute to see them in tiny outfits, but it does take some of the joy out of buying them.

However, I’ve had great luck with collar-attached bow ties with my cat. Rather than act like they have taken away her ability to walk, she usually settles for a disdainful look while I admire her bow tie majesty. This rainbow collar and denim bow tie is the perfect way to bring your kitty in on the Pride parade without worrying if they’re spending the time plotting your demise.

I’m a sucker for a good play on words, which is one reason this rainbow cat toy drew my attention so quickly. Its "purride" lettering leaves no doubt that it's a product in support of Pride Month, but it moves beyond some of the more expected phrases like "Love Wins" and "Love is Love." Plus, with the variety of dangling elements and the stuffed heart end, there is a ton of texture and interest for any cat to enjoy.

If you have a cat that likes to wear clothes (or if you’re feeling especially brave), this Pride-themed hoodie is a great buy. It's designed for easy wear by the cat without getting in the way of walking or using the litter box. It'll also help them stay warm in chilly spaces. Plus, they’re going to be the cat's meow to anyone who sees them in this adorable outfit.

Add a little color to your living space with this vibrant place to hide and play. Any cat is sure to love the lightweight fabric, multiple openings and dangling toy, and you’re sure to love the pride you feel every time you watch them play. Plus, because it's collapsible, the tunnel can be easily stored flat when it's not in use or you need more room.

Buy this rainbow cape for your favorite bearded dragon and make their dreams of flying like a real dragon come true (in their head at least). Alternatively, get it for a similarly-sized reptile and enjoy the tiny gay superhero before you in all of their glory. If you have a furrier pet of similar size, Petsmart sells a similar set that includes a tiny crown for extra "awws."

I’m not sure that there's much out there that is gayer than rainbow suspenders. With this tiny costume, your smallest furry friends can rock their own (printed-on) set. The outfit is meant to work on most guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, and other small animals.

Plus, Petsmart notes that it supports organizations like GLSEN all year long. GLSEN helps create LGBTQ+-inclusive schools, letting you spend your money confidently, knowing it's going to support those who support the community.
