The work you do as an AAHA-accredited hospital deserves to be recognized. Join us in celebrating the first annual AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day on July 22! This unique holiday was created to thank you for holding your hospital to a higher standard and to educate pet owners about what AAHA accreditation means for their pets.

Need ideas? Check out how some of our accredited practices are celebrating:

  • Rent a popcorn maker and attach a “Did you know?” fact to each bag before handing them out to clients. For example, “Did you know? Only 12–15% of veterinary hospitals in the U.S. and Canada are accredited,” or “Research shows nearly 60% of pet owners assume their veterinary hospital is accredited when it is not.”
  • Ask your local bakery to print (or pipe!) the AAHA logo on cookies or a cake. You can download the file from aaha.org/publicity.
  • Grab clients’ attention on social media by sharing photos of patients on an AAHA table mat.

 It’s not too late to make sure clients know your hospital is accredited:

  • Download AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day resources from aaha.org/publicity, including social media images, celebration tips, printable posters, and more!
  • Don’t miss the new infographic, “Behind the logo,” also recently added to the Publicity Toolbox
  • Feature the AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day logo on your social media channels and website
  • Use the social hashtag #AAHADay
  • Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube and share our posts on your social sites
  • Tell clients what AAHA accreditation means to you through communications like emails, social posts, and newsletters

Thank you for joining in our mission to deliver excellent care for pets. We look forward to celebrating AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day with you!
