The pets have been changed significantly since the 1.2 update.
Originally, there were 6 pets found only in chests with relatively rare appearance rates.
There were 17 pets added with the update, for a total of 23.
All 23 pets are now required for the achievement.

To count that you found the pet, you need to spawn the pet.
You can do this by equipping the pet's item and using it.
The pet will spawn and follow you until you die.

This is the full pet list:

No. - Pet - Item & Location
1 - Slime - Petri Dish from Chests or Gold Chests
2 - Guinea Pig - Cabbage from Dragon Snatcher, Chests, Gold Chests
3 - Zombie - Brain from The Groom, Gold Chests, Shadow Chests
4 - Bat - Vial of Blood from Vampire Miner, Gold Chests
5 - Tiphia - Beeswax from Dragon Hornet, Gold Chests, Ivy Chests
6 - Werewolf - Wolf Fang from Gold Chests, Werewolf on full moon

7 - Turtle - Seaweed from Ivy Chests
8 - Parrot - Parrot Cracker from Pirate in Ocean Biome
9 - Baby Penguin - Fish from Ice Chests
10 - Baby Dinosaur - Amber Mosquito from Extractinator
11 - Baby Truffle - Strange Glowing Mushroom from Truffle
12 - Baby Snowman - Toy Sled from Mimic in Snow Biome
13 - Baby Eater - Eater's Bone from Eater of Worlds
14 - Baby Hornet - Nectar from Queen Bee
15 - Lizard - Lizard Egg from Lihzahrd or Flying Snake
16 - Sapling - Seedling from Plantera
17 - Tiki Spirit - Tiki Totem from Witch Doctor in Jungle Biome
18 - Eyeball Spring - Eye Spring from Eyezor
19 - Cursed Sapling - Cursed Sapling from Mourning Wood
20 - Squashling - Magical Pumpkin Seed from Pumpkin
21 - Spider - Spider Egg from Pumpking
22 - Black Cat - Unlucky Yarn from Goodie Bag
23 - Baby Skeletron Head - Bone Key from Dungeon Guardian

Trading with other players is perhaps the quickest way to attain this achievement.
As I unlocked this achievement before the update, I do not have the 1.2 pets.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Original solution prior to update for reference:

The pets spawn randomly in chests and a few have other requirements, as listed.

Pet............. - Item............... - Chest Type..... - .....Location

Slime............. - Petri Dish....... - Wood, Gold.... - ...Underground, or in Dungeon
Guinea Pig..... - Cabbage.......... - Wood, Gold.... - .....Anywhere
Zombie.......... - Brain................ - Gold, Shadow - Underground, Underworld, Dungeon
Bat................. - Vial Of Blood.... - Gold.............. - .....Anywhere
Tiphia (rare ).... - Honeycomb...... - Gold.............. - ....Jungle, Underground Jungle
Werewolf (rare ) - Wolf Fang...... - Gold................ - .....Full moon^, Hard-mode

^The wolf fang now drops from werewolves on full moons. Previously, you needed to create a new world, activate hard mode, THEN search all the chests.

**[1.2] credit: Rich V90 : Tiphia from flying hornets in UJ, brain from zombies on bloodmoon, wolf fang from werewolves on full moon.

**[1.2] credit: Thanks to Old Willy Pete for original 1.2 pet list confirmation.

**added: Best to create many worlds and 'quick search' chests. This will be faster than combing through every inch of your first world (and you are not guaranteed all pets in each world).
