Georges Gardet (October 11, 1863 – 6 February 1939) was a French sculptor and animalier.
The son of a sculptor, Gardet attended the École des Beaux-Arts in the atelier of Aimé Millet and Emmanuel Fremiet (another noted animalier). Gardet's wife Madeleine was the sister of painter and decorator Jean Francis Auburtin, who collaborated with Gardet on work for the Parisian Exposition Universelle (1900).
