The uninspired metal food and water bowls, plastic storage tote for treats and large, unsightly bags of pet food in the corner all seem necessary if you have a cat or dog. But it sticks out in your vintage style home décor like, well, like plastic and blech.

I honestly never thought of integrating vintage style into my pet’s care until we moved to our 1970’s mobile home. I could no longer hide the cat food bowl and bag of food. It was there. For everyone to see. For ME to see. And I did not like what I saw.

One morning at a flea market, I had an “ah-ha” moment of using vintage (or vintage style) containers for pet food bowls and pet food storage containers. I snagged a couple small crocks and marched triumphantly home to bring a little vintage style to my cats’ lives.

What Criteria Does this List of Vintage Pet Supplies Meet?

  • Vintage Style – It’s hard to recommend something that is one of a kind and that will sell out of stock any moment. Besides, newer items are cheaper than vintage, so you don’t have to worry about breaking an expensive piece.
  • Various Sizes – I tried to find different sizes vintage style pet bowls and storage containers. Whether you have cats, a small dog or a big ol’ Brutus of a dog, there will be options for you.
  • Indoor and Outdoor Options – Not every suggestion is suited for outdoor use, and vice versa. I kept in mind that some pets will need outdoor bowls and storage while some need indoor. In this list, you will find different options for your needs.
  • Not Necessarily an Airtight Seal – Not all the pet food storage containers I suggest have airtight seals or snap on lids. They are all suited for storing pet food in that they are lined with plastic or metal and have lids. Again, based on indoor or outdoor use and also your animal (whether they try to get into the container), you will need to choose a pet food container for your situation.
  • Easy Cleaning – Water dishes, a treat jar, the best dog food storage containers, ANYTHING related to pets obviously needs to be cleaned. All of the items I chose for your pet’s food have easy-open lids and are easy to clean.
