Let’s Through Our Mutts a Bone… and Give Them A Chance
The NoHo Arts District dot com team is pleased to announce July 31 is National Mutt Day! What? July 31 (and December 21) are the days we officially celebrate our fabulous, loyal, gorgeous, mixed breed dogs.
In 2005, pet expert and animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige created National Mutt Day and is celebrated on both July 31 and December 2 to raise awareness of the plight of mixed breed dogs in shelters around the nation and to educate the public about the sea of mixed breed dogs that desperately await new homes. Mutts are the biggest percentage of dogs euthanized for many reasons like the lack of spay and neutering and the to the constant over-breeding and public desire of designer and pure bred puppies.
How can you celebrate National Mutt Day? The answer: in any way you are able to help one of our beautiful mutts.
- Go to the East Valley Animal Shelter or any County Shelter to adopt a dog
- Visit our friends at No Kill L.A. (NKLA) and adopt a dog
- If you can’t adopt a mixed breed friend on July 31st and December 2nd, please donate at least $5 to your local animal shelter, as they all need financial assistance,. Every dollar counts!
- You can also donate food and other supplies needed to your local animal shelter
- Or make a donation in the memory of a loved dog who has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
- Give extra love to your mutt
