Awkward moments with pets
What better way to celebrate National Awkward Moments Day than with our pets? We've all been there ― that awkward moment when we take a photo and, surprise, something else happens. Here, Best Friends staff members share their favorite moments from their camera rolls.
Say "Cheese!" Minnie. Oops, we mean say "Kisses!”
Awkward stretches (or awkward positions)
Working hard or hardly working? Bauer and Taz know when to take time out for ... yoga?
Awkward family photo
How it started vs. how it ended with Bauer the adopted dog. Family photos are hard, but a loving home is the best.
Who doesn’t love getting scratches in that perfect spot? We’re smiling, too, because Bergie was recently adopted.
That moment when the dentist asks if you brush every day. Bae, recently adopted from Abilene Animal Services, is a shelter ambassador to help promote animal adoption in his Texas community.
Our list wouldn’t be complete without an adoptable pet. Val is a charming cat at the Sanctuary, who is ready for Tongue Out Tuesday. He’s also available for adoption (hint, hint).

There’s always something fun happening with our furry, finned and feathered friends. Keep up with the animals and never miss a video.
