We both just learned an interesting tidbit tonight that we thought would be fun to share. Being advocates for shelter adoption, we were surprised we had never heard of such a thing before, but we loved the idea behind it. Since dogs brought into shelters are from all walks of life, often little background information is known of them, including their birthdays. With the help of a vet, it usually isn’t too hard to figure out the age of a dog, but their actual birthday forever remains a mystery.

Well, the North Shore Animal League America (the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization) decided that everyone deserves a birthday, and so they named the first day in August as DOGust 1st, a birthday for all of the shelter and rescue dogs whose birthdays are otherwise unknown.

With August right around the corner we thought now would be the perfect time to share the news for those of you who didn’t already know about it. Also, if anyone is interested in more information about the NSALA, you can get all the details right here: http://www.animalleague.org/
