This August we're celebrating Dogust! What is it you ask? Dogust takes place on August 1st, and is the universal birthday for all shelter and rescue dogs whose exact birthdays are unknown.
We want to take time this August, not just the 1st, to celebrate all dogs! Particularly those needing rescued, those who have been rescued and also the four legged pals who have rescued us.
Why not throw a dog friendly party and celebrate the pooch in your life. Since August is typically a Summer month which hopefully will bring good weather, you could throw a party in your garden and include some fun water activities and DIY frozen treats to keep any dog guests cool in the sun.
If a party isn't your preferred choice, think about what your dog loves best in life and give them one full day of it. Whether it be a walk along the beach, a run through a field or a lazy day at home.
If you're currently on the hunt for a four-legged companion, Dogust is the perfect celebration and opportunity to give a dog their forever home. We know that this isn't always possible, so instead try donate some time to a shelter. Shelters are always in need of a helping hand, from a small donation of money, food, or toys to volunteering your time, contact your local shelter to see how you can help.
Sharing your local shelters and their available pets to your social media is a great way of raising awareness, plus who knows, you may just be able to help someone else find their furry friend.
IWe want to see how you're celebrating this Dogust, tag us in your pictures on Instagram or Facebook and use the hashtag #Dogust to show off your pet rescue photos. Perhaps you haven't rescued a dog, but maybe have a pooch in your life that rescued you? We want to celebrate all dogs this Dogust so get sharing!.
Our team truly are dog lovers, and although not all rescues, our pets become an essential part of the family and in many ways have rescued us.
Let us introduce you to a few so you can see the friendly faces that make us smile every day.
