Do you ever get asked "What kind of dog is that?" We have your answer!  For $75, you get the DNA kit so you can swab your dog's cheek and send in the DNA sample to the lab. Family tree results will be sent to you via email within a few weeks.

This event will be an all-day-Saturday DNA kit sale, so you don't need to reserve a time, just come in when you're available. If you would like us to help with the swabbing, feel free to bring your dog in and we can get the process started! BONUS: With every DNA kit purchase comes a 15% off coupon to use that day in the store for treats, toys, or anything else you might need! 

Note: $75 is the lowest price in town, there is no sales tax, and 100% of the proceeds help homeless pets! If you cannot make it to this event but are still interested in a kit, you can purchase one in our Animal House Store for $90. The $75 promotion is for day of DNA Day participants ONLY.

If you are interested, please RSVP at the link below so we can make sure to have enough DNA Kits for everyone. If you do not RSVP, tests will be first-come, first-served. 

This event is curbside only, and all participants are asked to wear a mask for the safety of staff and volunteers. 


DNA Day this weekend is SOLD OUT! If you missed out this time, we're planning our next DNA Day (date TBD), so watch our Events Calendar at
