Hooray, Hooray for National Dog Day! This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Autotrader; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
We got Astro on May 24th of this year, and we’ve since seen two other families look into pet adoption. And why not use National Dog Day on August 26th to go out there and test drive pet-friendly cars for your new addition? As you know, we got Athena four years ago. She has since become my co-pilot in life. I spend more time with her than anyone. We go to the park and we go on errands in the cooler weather. We recently thought she might be a little lonely and looked into getting a new puppy. I couldn’t believe how fast it all went. We saw a post about cute rescue puppies in Mississippi and the rest is history.
That is how fast it can go! We saw Astro’s picture and called about him and although it was a lengthy and thorough adoption process, the whole thing was a matter of a few weeks. We got that magical date – May 24th – and told our kids we were going to New Jersey for a BBQ. Really, we were going to New Jersey because that’s where the rescue organization is.
Now that we have two kids and three pets, our next new car has to be both kid and pet-friendly. That’s a big deal! There are few things in life as joyous as cruising with one or both of my dogs catching a nice New England breeze out the window. And when we’re going to the beach and they get that first whiff of the ocean? SO GOOD. And that’s where Autotrader comes in! For the fourth year in a row, they’ll be celebrating National Dog Day with us! Yay! You know why? It’s because Autotrader knows that car shoppers take EVERY aspect of their lives into account when shopping for their next vehicle.
National Dog Day With Autotrader!
As you know, it’s a pretty big deal to welcome a new dog into your family. And I’ll never forget that first ride home with pretty much every puppy I’ve ever gotten! So right now Autotrader is celebrating National Dog Day with the launch of Dogtrader.com for a limited time. So what does this mean? It means that Autotrader is teaming up with Adopt-a-Pet to help dog lovers find their new best friend through Dogtrader.com. You’ll be able to find local, adoptable pets, and Autotrader will provide information about the best new and used pet-friendly rides, must-have accessories to keep your dog comfy in the car, and tips to keep them safe on-the-go. Such fun. Adoptable dogs and dog owner car help!
Pet adoption is a pretty big deal. Car buying is also a big deal, especially when you have a growing pet-friendly family like we do. Even our cat goes in our car! She has regular vet appointments. I love that Dogtrader.com is devoted to helping dog owners find adoptable pets, and get tips on pet-friendly car must-haves. We have a lot of precious cargo.

Aw, maybe someday will get a new best friend for Elsa here. But seriously Astro is just such a cutie 🙂
Holy cannoli…I am so behind this mission. What an incredible partnership and also I don’t think I knew that Astro came from a rescue in NJ!! I love that you guys have opened your home to so many fur friends and that they all (presumably!) get along!! Thanks for sharing this information; will def do more research on Autotrader and Dogtrader!
Ps: about your last post—I’m all for finding out more about appliances bc we are now in the market for things like dishwashers!
