DOGust: Three Dog Bakery donates $20,000 to animal rescue groups
Press release: Trois Chiens Bakery
Three Dog Bakery recently announced the results of its 2022 DOGust fundraiser for 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%.
DOGust (August 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 served by its bakeries by purchasing DOGust-themed bandanas. As a sign of further support, Three Dog Bakery locations provided large dog-friendly bone-shaped cakes to their local rescue shelters so the puppies could celebrate their birthdays.
Recipients of Three Dog Bakery 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 over $1,000 in contributions. Customers of Three Dog Bakery in Noblesville, Indiana, have contributed more than $2,000 to support Humane Society of Hamilton County rescue dogs in Fishers, Indiana.
“We deeply appreciate the generosity of our families of Three Dog Bakery customers who helped us raise funds to support shelters and rescue dogs during our DOGust campaign,” said Ally Homa, Chief Marketing Officer of the bakery. . “We are thrilled to have been able to make DOGust a birthday party for all of the dogs who have found their forever homes and those awaiting adoption at shelters and shelters across the United States.”
Three Dog Bakery opened in Kansas City, Missouri in 1989 as America’s first dog bakery, born out of a love and desire to bring healthy, drool-worthy treats to all dogs. Today, headquartered in Kansas City, the pastry chefs at Three Dog Bakery continue to wag tails with their premium treats made with real, simple ingredients slow-cooked to lock in irresistible aroma and flavor. Three Dog Bakery dog treats and pastries are available at 46 bakeries; in the treat aisles of pet stores, grocery stores and mass retailers in the United States, Canada and Hong Kong; and through select online retailers.
