Now you can have your car smell like your best friend or fur baby. For National Dog Day on August 26 — yes, that’s a real thing and should be a federally recognized holiday — you’ll be able to claim a free “new dog smell” air freshener from Autotrader.
It might seem like a cheap gimmick to get readers to click on a site, but it’s for a good cause. For every doge-smelling air freshener, Autotrader will donate to Adopt-A-Pet.com. You’ll be able to claim your air freshener and contribute to the cause at this link starting on August 24.
