DOGust: Universal Birthday for Shelter Dogs Month

10th August, 2017
You read that correctly. ‘DOGust,’ not August. DOGust is a yearly, month long celebration for all shelter pups and rescues. We don’t know their past, so we don’t know when shelter dogs and rescues have birthdays. Because everyone deserves a birthday – not knowing the date doesn’t stop us from celebrating! Beth Ostrosky, a spokesperson for the Animal League, the DOGust founding organization, describe this special month-long recognition, “A birthday celebration is an opportunity to express our sentiments for one another, These wonderful animals, many still waiting patiently in shelters for their adopters, are so fill of life and love, and live to please us. Now we have a day set aside to honor them and return the unconditional love and adoration they give us, day after day.” To help get the celebration started, we’ve got a list of some of the awesome ways people can celebrate their found fur-babies for DOGust.

It’s the perfect time to find the right match and many shelters are offering specials to help motivate guardians to take the plunge.   Volunteer at a Shelter.

Nikki Wiedmer
Thank you for the peace of mind that my dog is not in discomfort anymore, thank you for this product being organic and good for our dog's ears, and seriously thank you for giving us an option to help our old pup with a product we can afford.
Melissa Block Demant
I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!*
Tina Neupauer
EcoEars is a great product! I used it in my Lacey's ears and we haven't had any problems since.
Bonnie Schweitzer
This stuff really works--after spending money at the vet @ $25 a bottle, it's saving me a lot of money.
