National Dog Day is annually celebrated on August 26th since 2004. It was established by Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige, also the founder of National Puppy Day, National Mutt Day and National Cat Day and many more philanthropic days. The date of August 26th is significant, as it’s the date that Colleen’s family adopted her first dog “Sheltie” when Colleen was 10 years old.
Per NationalDogDay.com, “For dogs adopted on August 26th, National Dog Day becomes many a dog’s birthday and for all dogs, it’s as popular and exciting as the Super Bowl, with the anticipation of the day culminating into an explosion of network news stories, national TV show segments, online videos, shelter events, internet photos and K9 parties planned around the globe! Even citizens who are not dog owners will be encouraged to donate $5 to their local shelter or rescue on August 26th.”
Giving back to pet charities just doesn’t have to be on one day though! Another brand giving back is Lemonbug which is giving a $1 of each purchase to animal rescue organizations. Named after the founder’s rescue dog Louie AKA Lou Lou Lemonbug, Gerly Noland knew she wanted to create a brand that would also make a difference. Each piece of Lemonbug jewelry goes through a handmade process through love and care: cut + each individual character stamped + assembled + polished.
Lemonbug has bracelets and necklaces that you can customize with your dogs’ names. Lemonbug’s high-quality handmade pieces are cut, hand stamped, assembled and polished. Remember each purchase gives $1 back to animal rescue charities and after you purchase, take a selfie with your dog with the tag #lovemylemonbug.
