Celebrate Golden Retriever day on social media by sharing patient photos and/or fun facts about this breed.
Suggested Post: Today is Golden Retriever Day, a day to celebrate these loveable, gentle giants. Fun fact: Golden Retrievers first came to North America in the 1920s and were officially registered as a breed by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1925. They were originally a crossbreed, originating from a Tweed Water Spaniel and Yellow Flat-Coated Retriever back in the 1800s.
February 14 is a day dedicated to love – and raising awareness of pet stealing. You can combine these into one post or separate them into two.
Suggested Post: From everyone at INSERT CLINIC NAME, Happy Valentines Day! As you celebrate today, be sure to keep any treats or flowers out of reach of your furry friends <3
Not only is it Valentine’s Day, but it’s also Pet Theft Awareness Day. An estimated 2 million pets are stolen each year, and only 10% of them are returned to their owners. You can keep your pet safe by ensuring they are microchipped, that their microchip information is up-to-date, that their ID tags are securely attached to their collar, and that they are never left unattended or left to roam freely.
Celebrate Love Your Pet Day with a post that encourages your social media followers to engage by sharing photos of their pets. Everyone loves to show off their furry, scaly, feathered friends – give them an opportunity to do so!

Emphasize the importance of spaying (and neutering) pets on World Spay Day.
Suggested Post: Did you know that spaying your pet can prevent uterine infections? It can also help prevent breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50% of dogs and 90% of cats. Not only is spaying important for your pet’s health, but it’s also important for the pet population, too. An estimated 6.5 million companion animals enter US shelters every year!
