Press release: Three Dog Bakery
Three Dog Bakery recently announced the results of its 2022 DOGust fundraiser in support of animal rescue organizations: $19,883 donated to 33 nonprofit animal rescues across the United States. This amount exceeds last year’s total contributions for the same fundraiser by nearly 25 percent.
DOGust (Aug. 1) is nationally recognized as the unofficial birthday celebration for all shelter dogs whose birthdays are unknown. During the month of August, Three Dog Bakery locations across the country invited dog owners to support rescues and shelters in the communities its bakeries serve by purchasing themed DOGust bandanas. As an additional show of support, Three Dog Bakery locations provided large dog-friendly bone-shaped cakes to their local rescue shelters so that pups could celebrate their birthdays.
Recipients of Three Dog Bakery’s donations included the Bella Vista Animal Shelter in Bentonville, Arkansas; Big Dogs Huge Paws in Denver, Colorado; and the Indianapolis Humane Society in Indianapolis, Indiana, all of which received more than $1,000 in contributions. Customers of Three Dog Bakery in Noblesville, Indiana, contributed more than $2,000 to support rescue dogs at the Humane Society of Hamilton County in Fishers, Indiana.
“We deeply appreciate the generosity of our Three Dog Bakery customer families who helped us raise funds to support shelter and rescue dogs during our DOGust campaign,” said Ally Homa, Bakery Marketing Director. “We’re pleased to have been able to make DOGust a birthday celebration for all dogs who found their forever homes and those awaiting adoption at rescues and shelters across the United States.”
Three Dog Bakery opened its doors in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1989 as America’s original bakery for dogs, born out of the love and desire to bring wholesome, drool-worthy treats to all dogs. Today, headquartered in Kansas City, Three Dog Bakery’s pastry chefs continue to make tails wag with its premium treats crafted with simple, real ingredients slow baked to lock in irresistible aroma and flavor. Three Dog Bakery dog treats and pastries are available in 46 bakeries; in the treat aisles of pet stores, grocery markets, and mass retailers in the United States, Canada, and Hong Kong; and through select online retailers.
