If your pet is your Valentine this year, you're going to want to start drafting your epic social media dedication post now. Publicly declaring your love for your pet is no less difficult than it is for a human, after all — you still want to get the words just right and hit all of those sentimental-double-tapping notes. That's why I've created a list of Valentine's Day pet Instagram captions, so that you can focus on snapping or digging up that perfect photo, and not have to worry about matching it with the perfect caption.

Here you'll find a collection of quotes ranging from über-emotional to relatable AF, all of which will pull on your animal-loving heart strings. When it comes to expressing your love for your pet, there never seems to be a good enough combination of words to really capture it. That's why quotes from literature, the silver screen, celebrities and inspiring voices alike are a safe bet especially when it comes to social media. Share a picture or video of your pet with a quote that all of your followers can relate to, or be moved by, whether they have a pet or not. And of course don't forget to give your pet some extra TLC offline, where it really counts.
