Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League Will Host Birthday Party in Honor of DOGust 1st Universal Birthday Day for all Shelter and Rescue Dogs

August 1st is the universal birthday for all shelter and rescue dogs. To celebrate DOGust 1st, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League will be throwing a birthday party for the dogs currently at the shelter still looking for their forever home and for those that have adopted a dog from the League.

“For all of the families that have opened their home and heart to a rescue dog, and might not have known exactly the date or month your furry friend was born, you can now celebrate with us on August 1st at Peggy Adams,” said Rich Anderson, Executive Director/CEO of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

The birthday party at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League (3100 N. Military Trail, West Palm Beach) will take place at 1:00 pm under the portico in front of the Grace Pavilion. This special birthday party will include a decorated cake (compliments of Woof Gang Bakery in Palm Beach) for photos and individual “pupcakes” to pass out to the shelter dogs. And, a birthday party isn’t complete without singing happy birthday! The staff at Peggy Adams and all of those visiting the League on August 1st will join in singing the happy birthday song while sporting party hats and noise makers. The dogs will also be wearing colorful bandanas and party hats (if they'll leave them on that is).

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is also accepting wish list donations all month. For a complete list of items needed, please visit:
