Celebrate ‘Lookalike Day’ by Sharing a Selfie with Your Pet!


We’re well aware that most of you need no excuse to share a selfie. However, Easter Sunday this year also marks the return of everyone’s favourite awareness day, ‘Lookalike Day’!

Whereas this ‘interesting’ day usually involves people filling up social media with images of themselves made up to look like celebrities, this year we want to see how many of you think there is a resemblance between you and your pet.

On Lookalike Day (April 20th) we’ll be asking all of our fabulous followers on Facebook and Twitter to share a selfie that also includes your perfect pet and we’ll pick the entry that we think is the best as our ‘Petalike’ champion! To enter, all you need to do is share a picture of you and your pet using #PetAlike with us on Facebook or Twitter.

And if you have a friend who you think looks just like their pooch or kitty, give them a nudge to share their selfie too!

We can’t wait to see all of your wonderful entries…
