Plan Ahead: 5 Ways to Rock Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day + shelters sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G… Yup, celebrating February 14 in a big way is a natural fit for you who make matches every day. Check out the following ideas—including some no-cost ways to kick it up on social media—from your colleagues in the field.


Sacramento SPCA updated their Facebook Timeline last year with this beautifully designed Valentine-themed cover photo featuring a recently adopted dog. And you don’t need to stop at Facebook—you can use a graphic like this on your website’s homepage, enewsletter and even printed materials to hang up in the shelter.


CMPD Animal Care and Control celebrated V-Day last year with reduced-fee adoptions and a kissing booth, where a $5 donation got visitors a smooch from a shelter dog.


Animal Rescue League of Iowa scored major Facebook engagement when they asked fans to post their best pet-kissing photos and compiled them all into this fantabulous photo album.


Awww! Love is in the air with NOAH’s short and super-sweet video promoting reduced-fee adoptions.

Pitty in pink: Liberty Humane Society went all out with a fun photo shoot featuring dogs available for $14 all throughout February.


How do you plan to celebrate on February 14 at your shelter?


P.S. Meet Your Match agencies, mark your calendars! You’ve got a great opportunity coming up to connect with your local media on a post-Valentine’s Day story—show off an adoption success made using MYM!
