To celebrate National Dog Day 2012, Best Friends Pet Care will give away a free doggy ice cream treat to every dog who visits any of its four Philadelphia area locations on Saturday, August 25. The treats are dog-safe, made of yogurt or soy with dog-preferred flavors like peanut butter and honey.
Best Friends is located at 1150 Easton Road in Willow Grove, 3914 Pyle Road in Chadds Ford, 2500 Route 73 in Cinnaminson NJ and 585 Route 73 North in Berlin NJ.
Canine guests must be on leash and accompanied by a human companion. “National Dog Day acknowledges the important role that dogs play in our lives,” says Best Friends Vice President Renee Coughlin. “And, while we celebrate dogs every day at Best Friends, we wanted to do something extra special for this occasion.”
“Although Sunday is the official day, we’re celebrating early. All dogs – whether Best Friends clients or not – are invited to stop by any of our 42 locations on Saturday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. for a free ice cream.”
Founded in 2004, National Dog Day is observed annually on August 26. It honors dogs of all breeds — from working dogs to family pets — and encourage pet owners to do something special for their dog.
This is the second year that Best Friends has run the ice cream giveaway. The company is expanding its National Dog Day celebration this year, starting its observance on Friday, August 24 with treats for dogs participating in its doggy day camp program that day.
