If you are considering – or have already adopted a new pet, thank you! Now, how will you announce this big event and maybe encourage others to adopt too?

We hope this list of pet adoption announcement ideas will inspire you to share your exciting news! Sharing that you chose adoption is a big deal – so we hope you will spread the word that adoption is the way to go!

For some – adopting a dog or cat is pretty darn close to adopting a baby! So why not celebrate and document the moment when you tell your friends and family you have “adopted”?
