We’re Celebrating With Special Adoption Events

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.

At Our Port Washington Campus
