The Mesquite Animal Shelter is celebrating "DOGust". 

Jeanne Saadi is the manager of Animal Services. She says, "We just kind of stumbled across the fact that August 1 is national DOGust shelter dog birthday. We decided to grab a hold of that because obviously for the  dogs in the shelter this is kind of the first day of the rest of their lives."

She's hoping you'll find your best friend and adopt it into your home.

They are currently offering discounted dog adoptions if you bring a jar of peanut butter or jelly for local food pantries. The campaign ends August 3.

The shelter also has a special $5 cat adoption this summer.

Last year, the Mesquite Animal Shelter took in more than 6,000 animals.

The shelter is located at 1650 Gross Road.
