Veterinary Marketing Ideas for June
1. Adopt-a-Cat Month
American Humane celebrates Adopt-A-Cat Month® each June, marking the height of “kitten season,” when large litters of kittens are born and often end up in animal shelters.
2. National Pet Preparedness Month
Pets are important family members, and they need to be included in your client’s emergency plan. Make sure your clients know everything they need to care for their pet in an emergency, including who to contact in an emergency situation.
3. National Microchipping Month
Microchipping a pet is a simple and permanent way to identify them and help bring them home if they go missing. Do your clients know how important and easy it is to microchip a pet? This is a great time to remind them!
4. Pet Appreciation Week
We don’t need a social media holiday to celebrate pets, but this is a great time to gather adorable photos of your patients to share on your website and social media pages. You can ask for photos to be shared on your social media page, take photos in the clinic, or have people share photos on the photo gallery on your custom WhiskerCloud website.
5. Animal Rights Awareness Week
This week is designed to teach people about animal welfare and how we may care for and protect animals. The use of dogs in military experiments, puppy mills, and animal abuse are all major issues that should be discussed during this period.
6. National Hug Your Cat Day
Every day should be National Hug Your Cat Day, but be sure to remind people to hug cats a little tighter on this day. They’ll hate it, but everyone will be happy to hug a cat!
7. World Pet Memorial Day
On the second Tuesday of every June, Worldwide Pet Memorial Day was established to commemorate beloved pets that have died. This is a wonderful opportunity to remember and honor patients that have passed away. You can also build a custom memorial page on your website, too.
8. World Blood Donor Day
Because canine blood banks and efforts to make blood therapies more readily available to veterinarians are relatively new, the research and implementation of both were minimal until recently. Veterinarians whose patients required blood had to rely on their own dogs or those of a friend or client before regional canine blood banks came about. If you are involved with pet blood banks, this is a great time to explain it to your clients.
9. Father’s Day
On Father’s Day, we celebrate fathers and paternal relationships, as well as the impact of dads in society. This includes human fathers and pet dads!
10. Summer Solstice
Summer has arrived! This is a great time to share tips for keeping pets happy and healthy during the long and hot summer months.
11. National Selfie Day
A great way to get some community engagement is to ask for selfies with pets, and even better, your veterinary team should share selfies with your pets! Spread the love and share some adorable photos.
12. Take Your Cat to Work Day
For those humans that are brave enough to bring their cat to work, photos are a great way to share the memories. If you have a clinic cat, this is the perfect day to showcase them!
13. Cat World Domination Day
Do cats rule the world? This is time for a healthy debate. Share a video of your team answering who rules the world—cats or dogs? Ask your followers where they stand on this vital issue.
14. Take Your Dog to Work Day
Taking a dog to work is easy and brings a ton of joy to the workspace. Like Take Your Cat to Work Day, gather photos, and share the love on social media!
15. Social Media Day
Use this day to offer value to your social media followers. Perhaps a special just for social media followers on Social Media Day is a campaign that could be beneficial for your business.
