About Prefer Pets
My husband and I started Prefer Pets in 2006 on an afternoon drive to Victory Park in Pasadena CA, to spend a lovely Saturday with our 2 pekes, Button and ShoSho. On our way there, our boy Button escaped from the carrier that we had bought at a pet box store and proceed to play with us by running around on the floor of the car, ducking under the car seats, and finally wedging himself behind the brake pedal (Button being a tiny 3 months old at the time). Luckily, we were able to stop the car without any injury.This is when we knew we need to have a better carrier to travel safely with our 2 fur-kids.
From our first carriers, original duffel and original backpack, created with features and functions that we wished we had on that day, we have persistently evolve the designs of our bags based on feedbacks and pressure points from real customers and from our own journeys with Button and ShoSho as they grew older. Every Prefer Pets product that we make, it is with the thought of what we would want ourselves in term of mindful designs, quality material & construction, and customer service when we were buying pet products for Button and ShoSho.
Today, we proudly remain a family business and are still based in Southern California, and while our little boy and little girl are no longer with us, we are committed to continue making quality travel carriers for pets and the people who loves them, for enjoying life’s journey with their own Buttons and ShoShos.

This Product Plants One Tree 🌳
🌳 Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also provide tremendous social impacts by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities devastated by environmental damage.
The partnership with One Tree Planted is designed to be simple for customers to get involved in global reforestation. For every item sold from The Auto Things’ inventory, the company will give $1 to One Tree Planted to plant one tree. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation.🌳
