 Joel's pets?
Was it ever mentioned in the comic, or anywhere at all, what happened to them? Just curious...

Nope, wasn't mentioned. I also wonder what happened to his parents...

Considering the passage of time, they're probably dead.

Kinda a grim look on things, but it is realistic.

I wouldn't be surprised if they made another appearance in the comic, actually.

Housepets! pets live around fifty years, so how do you know?

It's possible they're still alive, though how well would be up for debate. Generally, wild animals don't live as long as domestic ones since they would then lack a lot of the comforts of having owners, such as shelter and a steady supply of food. I think the same would be true in this comic, unless I'm corrected.

They live between 15 and 30 years on average, actually. Take a breed's or species's lifespan in real life and double it and that's what it is in the Housepets! world. Animals in the wild, therefore, live even less. My guess is around 20-30 years have passed between that flashback and the present, and therefore his pets are probably dead.

Okay, we shall listen to Sabrina:

I may have neglected to mention beforehand: most animals in our world have significantly longer lifespans and smaller litter numbers than in your own. It’s still not the length of a human lifespan for most—elephants still only live about eighty years, and most ungulates still hover around forty and approach fifty, but dogs and cats also live up to forty years, though in the wild that number is often closer to fifteen. On average, anyway.

I'd say less.
Still, while it's true that Rick said that the pets leave twice as much as our pets, but that is contadicted here:

When Sabrina says dogs and cats live around forty years.

Pets can live up to 20 years in real life too.
