In case you didn’t know… today is “National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day!” To help get people involved via social as well as everyday conversations, Best Friends Animal Society teamed up with GIPHY Studios to create some timely (and very adorable) GIFs, Stickers, and Videos. They can all be found on the Best Friends Animal Society channel and easily used to add some cute animal love to any Instagram Story, Tweet, text message, etc… basically everywhere GIPHY is integrated (and be sure to use #NationalAdoptAShelterPetDay when you share!).
GIPHY and Best Friends Animal Society are long standing partners and have worked together over the years to bring awareness to the thousands of animals in shelters across the U.S. in need of good, loving homes. In regards to why this particular day is so important:
“COVID-19 has changed the way pet adoption looks but they are still happening! Best Friends Animal Society has been facilitating virtual adoptions with people so they can safely meet their new furry family member. We’re excited about these fun and adorable GIFs, Stickers, and Videos GIPHY helped us create. With how easily they can be shared on social media, we’re hoping they help spread the word on National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day and encourage everyone to adopt their next pet from Best Friends or a shelter or rescue group in their community.”
