International Dog Day (26th)

What did we do to deserve dogs? Man’s best friend, our canine pals share a special bond with us, which is why August 26th is officially International Dog Day! This is the day to spend time with and show appreciation for the dogs of the world

National Dog Day celebrates all breeds, pure and mixed and serves to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, from public shelters, rescues and pure breed rescues. National Dog Day honors family dogs and dogs that work selflessly to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day – for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage.

So let’s celebrate by sharing your story about your dog!
