Dog Gotcha Day Captions
If you have adopted your dog and are unsure of their actual birthday, many people choose to celebrate their pup’s gotcha day instead. A dog’s gotcha day is typically the anniversary of their adoption.
Growing up, this is what we did with our family dog, Tinkerbell. She was a rescue and the shelter did not know her actual birthday, so we celebrated her every year on the day she came into our lives.
Here are some cute dog gotcha day captions to try out…
- Happy Gotcha Day! You make the world a better place!
- One year ago today, my heart grew four paws bigger. Happy Gotcha Day, [Dog’s Name]
