It's the first day of Dogust!

'Dogust first' is the universal birthday for all rescue dogs. Through Sunday adoption fees will be 25 bucks for all animals.

FLORENCE, Ala. — From Monday, August 1 through Sunday, August 7 - adoption fees will be $25.00 for all animals.  Adopters will also go home with a new adopter packet of giveaways.

Join these partners in animal rescue as they celebrate DOGust 1st®, the universal birthday for all rescue dogs, during a celebration at Florence-Lauderdale Animal Services’ shelter throughout the week of August 1st. 

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.)
