DOGust 1: The Universal Birthday

Jackson is a mixed-breed dog and his birth date is not known

Do you have a rescue/shelter dog whose birthday is unknown? Well today is the day to celebrate his or her birthday!

DOGust 1 has become recognized as the universal birthday for adopted pets whose dates of birth are not known, as declared by the North Shore Animal League America. While many pet owners choose to celebrate their pet’s Gotcha Day (the day the pet was adopted), DOGust 1st gives pet owners a day to celebrate their pet’s birthday.

So if your dog is a rescue pet, we wish him or her a very Happy Birthday!

Do you know your pet’s birthday? Will you be celebrating today?
