What do snails, cats, iguanas and dogs have in common? They are all just trying to make a buck as office assistants. Some are hardworking; others are skating on thin ice.

We had no idea that when we asked to see your office pets, that we would get so many and such variety. Keep them coming with hashtag #ENTpets.

Is your office currently lacking it’s own pet? Not to worry, Overstock recently launched a pet adoption arm to it’s site. So if you are in the market for a puppy or an alpaca, Overstock has pulled data from over 6,000 shelters for all your adoption needs.

Now, onto the cuteness! In no particular order, here are 25 of our favorite submissions (this was no easy task).
