National Pet Day is celebrated annually on April 11. This year, April 11 falls on a Sunday—so you can turn your celebration into an all-weekend affair.

National Pet Day is a holiday dedicated to sharing your love for your pet, whether it’s posting their cutest pics on social, spoiling them with extra goodies, or paying it forward to your local shelters.

Ever since the first National Pet Day in 2006, animal lovers across the world have spent the holiday honoring their furry, feathered or scaly loved ones. And that mission extends to pets who haven’t found their forever homes yet: the pets in shelters waiting to be adopted. Tell your friends and family members about all the great things that your own pets bring to your lives, and encourage them to open their home to a pet in need, too. Think of it as the ultimate National Pet Day present.

The easiest way to honor your pet on National Pet Day is to post a pic with your pet on social! There’s no better way to get a double-tap from your friends and family, and each photo helps amplify the National Pet Day message of support for pets.

Post your National Pet Day image on your feeds. Don’t forget to use the #NationalPetDay hashtag, and tag @restartcbd too (because of course we want to see your adorable pet too).

No matter how you decide to celebrate your pet, share your plans and pics with fellow pet lovers on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter. Happy National Pet Day!
