America is the land of hard-core obsessive pet lovers. Those with wealth go to extraordinary lengths to indulge their passion for their pets: tailored outfits, chef-prepared meals, miniature homes and cosmetic surgery are just some of the ways wealthy owners splurge on their pampered pets.

But at the same time, wealthy animal lovers also freely give their cash to care for less fortunate creatures, donating millions of dollars and their time to support pet rescue centres across America.
