There are a number of new pets coming in patch 6.2. This list is a work-in-progress. I expect to add more new pets as more information becomes available.
Darkmoon Fair Pets
Darkmoon Faire host some new fish to be caught from the surrounding waters which can be traded in to a new NPC, Galissa Sundew.
Legendary Pet Battles & Rewards
Something to look forward to is new round of legendary pet battle encounters to be found around Tanaan Jungle. Currently there are 15 legendary pets to be found: Defiled Earth, Skrillix, Netherfist, Dreadwalker, Vile Blood of Draenor, Bleakclaw, Dark Gazer, Mirecroak, Direflame, Tainted Maulclaw, Felfly, Cursed Spirit, Chaos Pup, Corrupted Thundertail, Felsworn Sentry.
These new legendary pet battles reward Fel-Touched Pet Supplies. Each bag rewards a Pet Charm or two as well as the usual bandages, a new Fel-Touched Battle-Training Stone (which raises the level of any pet from any family by 1.) and a chance to receive one of the following rare pets:
If you enjoy the fel-look then look out because in Patch 6.2 you’ll be able to apply it to your battle pets! Another new toy is The Perfect Blossom found underneath a large tree in southern Tanaan Jungle. Clicking on it gives you several Fel Petal which give your pets a fel-tint! [Video]
Tanaan Jungle features one of two new reskins of the Frostwolf Pup model. The Fel Pup is an acid green version and can be obtained via a questline.
There is an additional new pet Corrupted Nest Guardian which is a drop from Shadow-Lord Iskar in Hellfire Citadel.
The Left Shark and Crusher have been datamined over @wowhead but it’s not known where or how to collect them. (Source)
The Fire Pup has also been datamined but again it’s not known where or how to collect it.
Nethaera’s Light (found in a previous build but never released) can be obtained in Dalaran. When you find it emote /cheer a few times and you’ll find it has been added to your pet journal.
[tweetherder]I suggest you may want to start saving your pet charms now because …[/tweetherder] come Patch 6.2 if your garrison is level 3 you will find a new vendor hanging out around your menagerie, Giada Goldenleash or Tiffy Trapspring. They offer 4 new battle pets and 3 new pet-related toys for trade. These new pets and toys will cost you 50 to 500 pet charms each.
- Magic Pet Mirror, allows you to take on the appearance of any pet that can battle. Sadly as soon as you cast or attack something, the illusion is lost. (500)
- Spirit Wand, turns your pet into a transparent ghostly pet. (100)
- Indestructible Bone, which allows you to throw a bone to your Perky Pug to carry around in its mouth. (50)

New Pet Achievements & Rewards
Pet Battles – A new achieve for defeating all the new legendary battle pets found in Tanaan Jungle is called Tiny Terrors in Tanaan currently there is not a reward shown on the Patch 6.2 PTR but that may change before going live.
Heroes of the Storm – MMO-Champion has datamined a new achievement related to a Heroes of the Storm promotion rewarding the Graves pet in World of Warcraft. No details as of yet to exactly when the promotion will start however it was recently announced that HotS officially releases on June 2nd.
