It’s no secret—we LOVE all pups, kitties, and creatures furry, feathered, and scaled. But, July 31st is a day the Mutts in our lives get a little extra shout-out for National Mutt Day!
In addition to requesting that you extend extra belly rubs to the Mutts in your lives, we’d also encourage our awesome Pet Parents to discover ways in which you can help and support less fortunate Mutts awaiting their forever homes. Many shelters depend on National Mutt Day for spreading awareness, receiving donations, gathering an increase in volunteer applications, etc. How will you love a little harder this National Mutt Day?
ImPURRRRtant reminder to any friends and family considering adoption—OUG! offers our Home-U-Go! aka HUG Program as a pay-it-forward to support, sponsor, and donate to our local shelters.
Peace, Love, & Belly Rubs
– Your BFFs at Out-U-Go!
July’s P.O.T.M. is…
Age: 11 months
Ted is a handsome boy and a huge ham! He loves to play and explore, and he’ll do anything for a tasty treat 🙂
What started off as a very sad and all too common situation turned out to be a happy Easter ending. Ms. Lily the Chihuahua was given up at 10 years of age when her family decided they no longer had time for her. Fortunately for this sweet little girl, the Naperville Area Humane Society took her, giving her new mom and dad the chance to fall in love with her.
Ms. Lily was named for the Easter holiday she was adopted on, and she is now ready for the next phase of her life enjoying endless loving care and (hooray!) daily visits from her adoring nannies at Out-U-Go!
Big hugs to you Lily, Janice, and Darryl…we are so happy for you all!
We are looking forward to our third year of participating in the Hinsdale Humane Society Pet Walk fundraiser! The pet walk is all set for Sunday, June 1st starting at 9am at Katherine Legge Park in Hinsdale. We hope to see you there!
The event offers dog contests, silent auction, raffles, vendors, pet portraits, adoptable dogs, and more! All proceeds benefit Rover Rescue’s homeless dogs, who have been saved from high-kill shelters.
For entry forms and more info, call 630-897-7454 or visit Rover Rescue.
We’re so proud of our pet sitter, Liz, and her Puppy Bowl sports superstars! When Liz is not working for us part-time evenings and weekends in Oak Park, she’s running Chicago’s ROMP Italian Greyhound Rescue. This year, ROMP became the first Chicago rescue ever selected to participate in Animal Planet’s popular Puppy Bowl X show!
Tail wags to contenders Sharpie & Taser for a game well-played! Check out their friends still looking for forever homes at ROMP Rescue.
The Out-U-Go! Hands for Paws donation drive benefiting the Maxfund No-Kill Shelter in Denver was a huge success this year! Once again, our awesome pet parents donated a ton of supplies that the Maxfund really needed.
Last month, we dropped off a truckload of the supplies our pet sitters picked up from your homes (leashes, dog beds, food & treats, paper towels, cleaning supplies, and more) to the Maxfund. They were so grateful to receive your gifts!
Big Wags and Thank You to all our wonderful Pet Parents! You did it again! We had the honor of delivering your gifts of food, supplies, toys, money, and more to Chicago Canine Rescue and Animal Care League.
Your participation in our Hands To Paws Holiday Donation Drive means so much to the dogs & cats and to the volunteers at the shelter who love them! Thanks for helping us make the holidays a little brighter for those pups and kitties awaiting their forever homes!
