It's going to be PAWesome.

Today, we shed some well-deserved light on the unconditional love-giving, best friends of the world. August 26 is National Dog Day, which (according to the website) serves as a reminder of the many dogs in need of rescuing each year, as well as the four-legged friends who work selflessly to save lives and bring us joy.

Looking to adopt? Head to Norma’s Café in North Oak Cliff. The comfort-food-filled, old-school diner has partnered up with Operation Kindness to host their fourth annual Dog Days of Summer Pet Adoption event. Be sure to order today’s special addition to the menu, the chili dog platter, to have a portion of your purchase donated to Operation Kindness.
