From facilitating meet cutes to being your beloved third wheel, pets are an important part of relationships. Pets are fur-children, first loves, and sometimes the favorite cuddler. When it’s time to take next steps in a romantic relationship, pets are right there alongside you to share in the excitement.
Chewy wants to celebrate couples who have included pets in their proposal—a pet-posal, if you will—or engagement photos. Whether it’s getting your pet’s permission, having them deliver the ring or even a photobomb happy accident, we’re here for it all.
If you’re getting married in 2024 or 2025, share your pet-posal photos or videos with Chewy, between Jan. 10 and March 31, 2024, for the chance to win a $1,000 Chewy eGift card to put toward your pet expenses during what tends to be a very expensive year. Ten lucky couples will win the eGift card, and 100 couples will win a special surprise gift.
