Animals, People, & the Earth

Celebrating Our Pets on National Pet Photo Day and Every Day

July 11th is All American Pet Photo Day, a day dedicated to showing off our beautiful pets on social media and beyond. We want to celebrate all pets everywhere, because this is an international pack of two-and four-legged buddies, and this community is truly at the heart of everything we do at Earth Animal. That’s why today we’re kicking off a photo contest with an epic prize: the chance to be featured in Earth Animal’s marketing material, PLUS a gift certificate to your favorite independent pet supplies store!

Read on to learn more about the competition and how to participate.

The bond between a human and animal is a strong one. For humans, animals enhance our lives in a myriad of ways. They show us unconditional love and bring us so much light and joy as our companions, adventure buddies, and integral members of our families. At Earth Animal, we’re all about promoting the positive relationships between humans and animals, and we want to show the shared joy of lives well-lived between pets and pet parents.

So, snap a photo showing the special relationship between you and your pet… and share your love and joy with us, however that looks to you! It could be adventuring in nature together, celebrating a milestone, exploring a new destination together, family time at home, and so much more. Our pets are a part of life’s meaningful moments, both big and small, and we recognize how special that is.
