National Dog Day Promotion

Celebrated annually, National Dog Day strives to increase public awareness regarding the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year. On August 23rd, businesses, shelters and rescue organizations across America will host "affiliate events" to celebrate dogs and help save homeless dogs in their community. In 2007, National Dog Day resulted in the adoption of nearly 15,000 homeless dogs! One way all of us can help is by donating $5 or more to a local animal shelter. At Best Friends Studios, we're making a donation to the Animal Protective Association (APA) of Missouri, which has seen a decrease in adoptions due to construction on Highway 40/I-64.

In addition, you can share the name of your favorite animal shelter to be considered for a future Shelter Friends profile on our website. As a thank-you for helping out, you'll receive a coupon code for free shipping on your next order at Best Friends Studios, plus a chance to win a $25 gift certificate. To participate, simply click HERE to provide the following information:
  • Your Name
  • Email Address
  • Local Shelter Submission
That's all there is to it! DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTALS: Friday, September 5, 2008. We look forward to hearing about your favorite shelters! Ellen & Mary Ann
