Ohio Hound Rescue, Pet Wants North, & Three Sisters Pet Rescue to Host Event Celebrating “DOGust the 1st,” the Universal Birthday for Shelter & Rescued Pets

Cincinnati – Local Pet Food & Supply Store, “Pet Wants North,” in partnership with “Ohio Hound Rescue” and “Three Sisters Pet Rescue,” will be hosting a universal birthday party in honor of all rescued or rescuable dogs and cats. The event will promote pet adoption.

“The animal rescue community regards August 1st to be the universal birthday for adopted pets,” says Elisabeth Mayer, owner of Pet Wants North. “If your dog is like my three dogs — adopted from a shelter or rescue — you most likely don’t know his or her true birthday. Our birthday party will celebrate pets that have found homes, while encouraging would-be pet owners to adopt their next pet.”

What: “DOGust the 1st,” a birthday celebration for all rescued/rescuable pets
When: Wednesday, August 1, 2012, 4-7:30pm
Where: Pet Wants North, 7713 Camargo Road (just off the corner of Miami and Camargo), Madeira, OH

The party will have free birthday cake and treats for dogs, as well as treats for their owners. Several adoptable pets will be on the premises during the event.

Raffle tickets will be sold for a chance to win an original work of art (pictured*) by “America’s Favorite Animal Artist,” Ron Burns, with all proceeds divided between Ohio Hound Rescue and Three Sisters Pet Rescue. Wayne Pacelle, President of The Humane Society of the United States, has said of Burns: “Ron has the ability to look into the souls of the animals he meets and reflect them back to us through his art.”

You can learn more about the event at Pictures of the adoptable dogs can also be found at Three Sisters Pet Rescue and Ohio Hound Rescue.

According to the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty for Animals(ASPCA), approximately 5 million to 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized (60 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats). Despite the abundance of homeless animals, only an estimated 20 to 30 percent of cats and dogs are adopted from shelters and rescues.
