We’re still riding the high on the US Women’s National Soccer Team’s incredible World Cup win. While the players return home to some well-deserved rest and relaxation, we wanted to know who they would be spending their time with. Turns out, many of the players are serious animal lovers with cats and dogs of their own.

Put on your fan jersey and check out your favorite player’s cute pets.


Alex Morgan’s dog, Blue

Forward Alex Morgan clearly adores her dog, Blue. She posts about him on Instagram frequently, celebrating his birthday with a dog-friendly cake and calling him her family. Morgan is a big advocate of dog adoption (and is a practicing vegan.) Blue even features in a recent ad spot that Morgan did with PETA. In the accompanying video, Morgan says, “we’re not owners—if anything, he owns us.”

Christen Press’s pup, Morena

Whenever forward Christen Press is home, she’s probably cuddling with her adopted dog Morena. Press is also an avid supporter of dog rescues.

Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger’s dog, Logan

Goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris and her fiancée, defender Ali Krieger, share a 180-pound Cane Corso Mastiff named Logan.

Adrianna Franch gets kitty cuddles

We’re not sure what goalkeeper Adrianna Franch’s cats’ names are, but it’s clear there’s a lot of love between them. How cute are the grey cat’s little paws?

Abby Dahlkemper’s pup, Bobby

Defender Abby Dahlkemper adopted her sweet cockapoo, Bobby, last winter. Clearly, she’s taken to pet ownership with the same passion she’s taken to the field.

Tierna Davidson’s dog, Harley

Defender Tierna Davidson recently told Teen Vogue that missing Harley is one of the hardest parts of traveling.

Crystal Dunn’s cat, Zara

What a cute cat! Defender Crystal Dunn told Newsday in 2018 that she made a point of going home to see her cat, Zara, whenever possible.

Kelley O’Hara’s foster dog, Brooklyn

Defender Kelley O’Hara is a fierce advocate of dog adoption. Her foster pup, Brooklyn, was a major focus on her social media in 2017. She celebrated Brooklyn’s adoption on Instagram.

Becky Sauerbrunn’s cats

Defender Becky Sauerbrunn loves cats so much that “cat lover” is on both her Twitter and Instagram handles. She clearly adores these two kitties, too.

Morgan Brian’s dog, Tanner

Midfielder Morgan Brian has the sweetest Dachshund, Tanner. We don’t know much about this cutie, but we are having fun imagining him running around the soccer field after her.

Rose Lavelle’s dog, Wilma

Midfielder Rose Lavelle posts almost as much about her English bulldog, Wilma, as she does about soccer. She’s so devoted to her dog that she uses an app to dole out treats when she’s away from home, she told the Washington Post. Bonus: she writes hilarious tweets about being a dog lover. And about her dog, of course!

Many of those tweets feature videos and photos of Wilma, too. Awwww.

Allie Long’s two pups

When midfielder Allie Long isn’t on the green, she’s probably playing video games with her pets underfoot. The pups sometimes get her in trouble when she’s traveling with teammates, according to ESPN. It’s a good thing they’re so cute!
