Tuesday, August 1st, 2017 is the Universal Birthday for Shelter Dogs … also known as DOGust First.
Do you not know the birthday of that special pooch you adopted from the shelter? Maybe you don’t celebrate the “gotcha day,” or can’t remember it? It’s a sad fact that many of the dogs who wind up in shelters can’t be registered for official birthdays. Oh, shelter workers can estimate their age, but they can never know for sure. How would you enjoy it if you couldn’t celebrate the date of your birth? The Animal League has deemed the month of August as a universal birthday for shelter dogs.
Celebrate your doggie’s Birthday, and the birthdays of all shelter dogs by donating your time or money to your local no-kill shelter this year. The pups will appreciate it!
