National Dog Day!

August 26th is National Dog Day!

Here are some fun and easy ways to tie in this awesome event day with your organization:


The perfect time to offer discounts on adoption fees at your shelter or rescue.  Do all things DOG and hold fun events at your shelter or a local community park for dogs and their owners to enjoy – an Owner/Dog Look-A-Like Contest, Stupid Pet Tricks, or a Scavenger Hunt are just a few ideas to tie-in with free or reduced adoption costs for those in attendance.  Serve hot dogs – of course!



Pet Therapy is a popular service offered in many hospitals and cancer centers.  Why not recognize these service dogs and their owners or handlers with a special event?  Team up with a local dog bakery or pet store and sell items and goodies with proceeds benefitting the Pet Therapy program.


Why not let folks know how “dog-gone” easy it is to conserve, recycle or be earth friendly?  Invite dogs and their owners out to a local dog park and offer literature and other information or demonstrations on how pet owners can be earth friendly in their care of pets!
