1-800-PetMeds® Celebrates All Shelter Dogs’ Birthdays with the DOGust Celebration Sweepstakes!

Delray Beach, Florida, August 01, 2019 – When dogs come into shelters, it’s difficult to pinpoint their dates of birth, and all shelters can do is give an educated guess to each dog’s birthday. While an approximate age in years is possible to determine, an exact date of birth is not. So in 2008, August 1st was declared the universal birthday for all shelter dogs by the North Shore Animal League America, the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. Now, for over 10 years, August, also known as DOGust has been deemed as the time to celebrate for all shelter dogs. This year, 1-800-PetMeds® joins in on the celebrations with the DOGust Celebration Sweepstakes!
Celebrate your pup this DOGust with extra treats and activities that your dog loves. Take them to the dog park or beach, go on a walk, spoil them with new toys, or even just spend a whole day pampering them. Another great way to celebrate DOGust is to donate to your local shelter. Whether it’s your time, money, or items, all would be greatly appreciated by the pups in need.


“Of course our pets don’t realize it’s their birthday, but they sure do recognize and appreciate the extra attention and gifts, like the yummy treats and fun toys in the DOGust Celebration Sweepstakes prize pack!” Says Larissa Schenck, Director of Marketing at 1-800-PetMeds®.


All pet parents are invited to enter the DOGust Celebration Sweepstakes from now until August 29, 2019.
