National Dog Day 2016
National Dog Day was started in 2004 to raise awareness of the need for homes for shelter dogs. Along with raising awareness for just home many dogs need homes, National Dog Day is also meant to celebrate dogs of all breeds, especially working dogs - police dogs and other dogs that put their lives on the line to keep humans safe.
One great way to celebrate National Dog Day is to make a donation - financial or dropping off something from their wish list - to a local shelter or rescue organization.
For all of you out there who have welcomed a dog (or multiple dogs) into your life, give yourself a pat on the back and your furbaby some extra lovin'.
