5 Ideas For Celebrating Your Pet’s Gotcha Day!

on April 23, 2017

Many pet owners don't know the actual date their "fur baby" was born, but still want to recognize the importance of them joining the family. "Gotcha Day" celebrations are a popular way to do this. We recently celebrated our dog Taco’s third Gotcha Day – or the third anniversary of the day we adopted him from Stray Rescue of St. Louis. We're pretty sure Taco thinks every day is a cause for celebration, but here are a few ideas to make your pet's Gotcha Day extra special.

  1. Invite some friends over for a play date or meet up at a dog park.

  2. Serve them a special meal or treat.

    Maybe served in a brand new elevated dog bowl!

  3. Get yourself something to celebrate with them

    Maybe some home accessories or a dog hoodie!

  4. Go on a favorite walk or hike with your best friend.
