Portrait of a woman with her beautiful dog lying outdoorsRecently, we held our very first ever Happy Beginnings cover model search. Thousands of heartwarming and smile-inspiring photos poured in from awesome pet adopters just like you who were out to prove that shelter pets are loving, warm, and soulful beings. And since a picture says 1,000 words, we think there may be no better way to get the message across! So, we’re doing it again!

You know your favorite photo of you with your pet – the one that just exudes happiness and with mere pixels, communicates just how wonderful having a pet can be? What if that photo – YOUR photo of YOUR pet – inspired other people to adopt and save the life of a shelter pet? We’re searching for Adopt-a-Pet.com’s next Facebook “cover pet” photo – and it could be of your best friend. We’ll choose one photo that captures the essence of pet adoption – the happiness, the joy, the smiles, laughter, and love – to be featured as our cover pet on Facebook and featured on our blog.

Here’s how your photo can be chosen:

  1. Follow us on Instagram
  2. Post your photos to your Instagram account with a caption telling us your favorite thing about your relationship with your pet.
  3. Make sure you mention @adoptapetcom in your caption and include the #HappyBeginnings hash tag.

Let’s debunk stereotypes and start more Happy Beginnings for shelter pets! Good luck!
