Featured sections on the site include The Casting Couch, where users can look for casting opportunities for their pet; Pet Pin-up, where proud owners post their cute pictures for a chance to have their pet host the Saturday night pet programming lineup on the channel, and The Daily Treat, where pet expert Janet McCulley blogs about pet trends.
