After all the time pet parents have spent with their dogs over the past year and a half, a recent survey unveiled 72% of American dog owners feel that their bond with their furry friend has strengthened, and 78% said their dog has helped them through some of the most difficult times of their lives*. That’s why, in honor of National Dog Day 2021, Stella & Chewy’s and soccer star and dog mom Alex Morgan have teamed up to give pups across the country the best day ever.
Throughout the week leading up to National Dog Day on Aug. 26, Stella & Chewy’s and Alex Morgan will be sharing tips and ideas for how pet parents can step out of their routine to spend a fun, intentional day with their pups. And, shelter dogs deserve love on National Dog Day, too, which is why Stella & Chewy’s is donating proceeds from a limited-edition “I’d Rather Be With My Dog” hat and matching dog bandana apparel set, in partnership with dog merchandise brand Lucy & Co.
“I’m so excited to partner with Stella & Chewy’s to give pet parents ideas for an awesome National Dog Day this year, and support shelter dogs in the process!” said Alex Morgan. “After being away from my dogs, Kona and Blue, I’m really looking forward to spending intentional time with them. We have some fun activities planned throughout the day, starting with a game of soccer and ending with a cozy evening on the couch.”
Stella & Chewy’s is ensuring dogs have the best doggone National Dog Day by:
- Offering tips and ideas for pet parents to enjoy the day with their dogs, from creating a ‘barkuterie’ board to completing a sports obstacle course.
- Extending love and support to shelter dogs through the purchase of Lucy & Co’s limited-edition National Dog Day apparel. Proceeds will go toward the Journey Home Fund, Stella & Chewy’s charitable program that supports non-profit organizations that place a focus on rescuing and rehoming senior cats and dogs.
- Hosting a special giveaway where five lucky pet parents can win a “Best Day Ever” gift pack, including an Alex Morgan signed doggie soccer ball, an “I’d Rather Be With My Dog” hat and $50 gift card from Lucy & Co, and $100 worth of delicious food and treats from Stella & Chewy’s.
