Pennsylvania SPCA is teaming up with North Shore Animal League America in partnership with Baby Doge to PAW-TY! Join these partners in animal rescue as they celebrate DOGust 1st®, the universal birthday for all rescue dogs, during a celebration throughout the week of August 1st.
From Monday, August 1st through Sunday, August 7th, Pennsylvania SPCA is celebrating the dogs and puppies in their care as they find them loving, responsible homes.
Adoptions take place at the Pennsylvania SPCA Headquarters on 350 E. Erie Street. Adoption Hours are 12:00pm – 6:30pm daily. No appointments are necessary.
To commemorate this year’s DOGust 1st, celebrations are being hosted more fifty (50) of Animal League America’s shelter partners across the country throughout the week. The five shelters that record the most adoptions during this window will win monetary prizes thanks to this partnership with Baby Doge. For more details visit www.animalleague.org/DOGust1st.
Since the actual dates of birth for most rescued dogs are unknown, North Shore Animal League America created DOGust 1st to celebrate rescue dogs (those adopted and those still in shelters awaiting loving homes.) Since 2008, these “mutt-i-grees” have had this day designated to honor the incredible impact they make on our lives.
And remember, it may be DOGust, but many felines are looking for loving homes, too (especially now during the height of kitten season.) #DOGust1st #GetYourRescueOn
