Do you ever get asked "What kind of dog is that?" We have your answer! Bring your dog to the ARL to have a DNA test done! For $75, you get the DNA kit and you'll swab your dog's cheek and we will send in the DNA sample to the lab. Results will be sent to you via email.

A few guidelines for the event:

  • Arrive within your scheduled time slot.
  • We will have A LOT of dogs coming for the event, so please be respectful.
  • If your dog is nervous with other dogs, you can take the kit to the car to swab him/her. Please be aware of the temperature outside.
  • NO retractable leashes, choke chains, or prong collars.

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.
