Tuesday Tidbit

National Dog Day

When : Always August 26th

National Dog Day has two goals: to honor dogs, and to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse. It's an opportunity for us to recognize and appreciate the value and importance of dogs in our lives.

This day is intended to honor dogs for all that they do for us. In addition to giving love and companionship, dogs help us out in countless ways. They are watchdogs for our safety. They lead the blind. Dogs aid in search and rescue, and they seek out bombs and drugs.

The second goal of National Dog Day is to rescue dogs in need. On occasion, dogs need us to save them from homelesness and abuse. The goal of the National Dog Day foundation is to rescue 10,000 dogs a year. Lend a hand to help a dog in need today, or any day.

Origin of National Dog Day:
National Dog Day was created by the National Dog Day Foundation. Their motto is "Saving 10,000 Dogs - One Day at a Time".

President George W. Bush, a dog owner himself, sent a letter to the foundation in support of National Dog Day.

In honor of National Dog Day and our dog-owning customers, select Sonic Drive-In locations in Texas will be offering FREE Doggy Bags with purchase to the first 100 customers who bring their dogs through our drive-thru on Saturday, August 23. What can you expect from our Doggy Bags? Look for a treat, some fun Sonic-related merchandise for your pet’s safety, and more! The event will start when we open at 6:00am and continue while supplies last. Customers who arrive after all Doggy Bags have been handed out will still get a treat for their pet, plus a coupon for coming out to support this great event!

Exact Orange County CA location to be announced very soon!

National Dog Day has officially changed it's date! Due to a large majority of Dog Day fans expressing that the heat in August is just too much for them and/or their dogs to bear, we have changed the date to October 25th annually.

This year will be the last of the events during August and we'll celebrate our new date with this event in Orange County, California.
