Happy National Dog Day - August 26, 2016!Even though National Dog Day has been celebrated since 2004, it's safe to say most dog lovers haven't heard of it or don't know how to celebrate it.
From the National Dog Day website:
National Dog Day celebrates all dogs, mixed breed and pure. Our mission is to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day...for personal protection, for law enforcement, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage, now they're detecting cancer and seizures...things even humans cannot do.
How to celebrate National Dog Day
- You can adopt a deserving dog from your local shelter.
- Have a safety check of your home to make sure it's safe for your dog and others.
- Donate blankets, food, and toys to animal welfare organizations.
