National Dog Day is a US dog day celebrated on August 26, 2015. It’s aim is to honor dogs and to rescue them from homelessness and abuse.
“Millions of dogs are killed each year because they’re simply unwanted”
(Colleen Paige, founder of National Dog Day)
National Dog Day was founded in 2004 by National Dog Day Foundation. The purpose of the day is to encourage dog ownership of all breeds and embraces the opportunity for all dogs to live a happy, safe and ”abuse-free” life. The National Dog Day Foundation supports all breeds and varieties of dogs and discourages purchasing from unethical backyard breeders and puppy mills. Instead, support and adopt from rescue homes. Join the celebration of National Dog day and take time to appreciate the love and value that dogs bring to our daily lives.
