Celebrate DOGust the 1st®
August 1 @ 12:00 am
It’s a sad fact, but shelters nationwide have no choice but to make an educated guess when it comes to the age of the dogs in their care. Approximate age in years is possible, but as to the date of birth — their true birthday — it’s just not possible.
So to give these wonderful dogs their much deserved recognition, North Shore Animal League America has declared the first day of August as DOGust the 1st, the designated birthday for all shelter and rescue dogs — or as we like to call them, Mutt-i-grees.
There are two ways to celebrate this special day. You can post a picture of your birthday boy or girl on social media using the hashtag #dogust. If you don’t already have a canine companion, consider a visit to our Port Washington, NY Adoption Center or your local shelter to make the day extra-special for a dog in need of a loving, responsible home.
And Happy Birthday, Dear Mutt-i-gree!
Happy Birthday to You!
