Did you know that August 1 is celebrated as the Universal Birthday for Shelter Dogs? That’s why it’s called DOGust 1st!
North Shore Animal League America declared this day as “the universal birthday for all shelter and rescue dogs, since most often their actual dates of birth are unknown”.
HOW CAN WE CELEBRATE?
Throw a “pawty for a cause”.
As you celebrate your dog’s special day, ask family and friends that in lieu of gifts, they can just bring donations for a local rescue or shelter. It could be in cash or in kind, e.g. dog food, toys, towels, leashes, etc.
Volunteer at a shelter.
While monetary donations are much needed and appreciated, shelters always need an extra hand. You may contact your local shelter and check how you can help and donate your time.
Pamper your (adopted) dog.
Adopted or not, give your pup extra special attention and affection on this day. You can buy their favorite treats, give them a luxurious bath, take them for a nice stroll – anything to make them extra happy!
According to the Mosby Foundation, only 1 out of every 10 dogs born will find a permanent home. Meanwhile, NCPPSP says only 15%-20% of dogs that enter shelters are returned to their owners. And with the pandemic causing bigger challenges, it has become more crucial to spread the word about pet adoption.
Perhaps it’s the right time to welcome a new dog to your home? Tell your family and friends too!

Through wine sales and donations, we support the placement of as many rescue dogs as possible into loving homes. 50% of our profits go to support rescue dogs and charity organizations, as well as local SPCAs. We also volunteer our time and personally foster dogs.
In this fun and inspiring interview with Fox40, Blair and Laura Lott, owners of Rescue Dog Wines, talk about how they have turned their love for agriculture and animals into a winery that benefits rescue dogs.
“Having it cause-oriented, it makes it bigger than yourself and it motivates you to get up in the morning and keep making the calls,” said Blair Lott.
“All of our still wines are vegan friendly. So, the process is friendly and it’s important to me that we make really good wine to support what I consider to be a really good cause,” explained Laura Lott.
