In brief: None
All cats and dogs produce allergen, there are really no "hypoallergic" pets.
Individual animals, however, may produce less allergens than others. The problem is, that you can't tell ahead of time.

Yes. Don't believe those pet store signs that say hypoallergenic due to not shedding. Although the hair or fur contains the allergens, it is the fine particles of skin that do the damage. All animals shed their skin - ALL of them.
