Everybody loves a birthday…. Rescue dogs deserve birthday celebrations and that was the thinking when North Shore Animal League America declared the first day of August as DOGust 1st®, the official birthday of all rescue dogs or as we like to call them, Mutt-i-grees.

This year we’re getting the party started with 50% off adoption fees for all dogs 6 months and older throughout the month of August at our Alex and Elisabeth Lewyt Canine Adoption Center in Port Washington, NY.*

*All adoptions are subject to approval. Offer applies to adoptions of dogs 6 months or older only. Must be 21 or older to adopt. Spay/neuter deposit may apply. Available at our Port Washington, NY Adoption Center only.

Happy Birthday!
