While most dog lovers would agree that every day is National Dog Day, Operation Kindness and Norma’s are doing something special to celebrate. For the fourth year in a row, at all three Norma’s Cafe locations, as well as the Wagging Tail Dog Park, Operation Kindness will have dogs and puppies of various breeds available for adoption.
In honor of the event and National Dog Day, Norma’s Cafe has brought back its popular chili dog platter – two juicy, 100 percent beef Nathan’s Famous hot dogs served open-faced over Texas toast and topped with chili, cheese, onions and jalapeños (served with chips, fries or tots). In addition, Norma’s Cafe will donate a portion of their sales from the day to support Operation Kindness’ care for nearly 300 animals every day. The funds will provide the organization with resources for medical care, food, shelter and the chance for the animals to find a new home.
“We are excited to team up with North Texas’ oldest and largest no-kill shelter through our Dog Days of Summer event again this year,” said Ed Murph, owner of Norma’s Cafe. “Norma’s Cafe encourages all guests to join in our support of the shelter’s efforts to find these dogs a new home at all of our locations.”
Norma’s Cafe guests who adopt on-site will receive a free $25 gift card to the restaurant. All adoptable pets on location will be current on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, and microchipped. The adoption process is quick and simple – guests of Norma’s Cafe are able to adopt their new pet onsite and take them home, or pick up their new family member from Operation Kindness after work. A full list of adoptable dogs can be found online on the Operation Kindness website at www.OperationKindness.org. Pet Supplies Plus, the official pet supply retailer for Operation Kindness, will also be in attendance and will be providing dog treats and coupons throughout the day to all Norma’s Cafe guests.
“We are extremely grateful for Norma’s Cafe’s continued support as they take part in the Dog Days of Summer event for their fourth year,” said Julie Goff, Development Manager for Operation Kindness. “We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate National Dog Day than holding adoptions at all three of their locations, which gives us the opportunity to spread awareness of pet overpopulation and to share our loving animals with the North Texas community.”
