There are a lot of holidays that don't get as much attention as Halloween or Christmas, but one of the best is National Dog Day.

What is National Dog Day?

Reference: NationalDogDay.com

National Dog Day is celebrated annually on August 26. It is celebrated to bring attention to the plight of animals who aren't in loving homes and encourage adoption. It serves to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued every year and acknowledges every dog, including family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe, and bring comfort.

Dogs work every day for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for a child who is disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs, and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage.

National Dog Day can be marked as a dog's birthday for those rescued on the day and it can be very popular and exciting for all dogs with the explosion of pet parties planned around the globe. So get ready to post some cute photos and make some of our best dog crafts to give your pups the special day they deserve!
 

What to Do on National Dog Day

What to Do on National Dog Day

There are so many ways to celebrate National Dog Day whether you're a dog owner or not!

1. Adopt a dog!

  • The number one way to celebrate National Dog Day is to adopt a dog from your local shelter or rescue organization. It goes without saying that you should only adopt a dog if you are ready and able to give it the love and support needed to live a happy life. 
  • If you cannot adopt a dog right now, there are plenty of other ways to celebrate National Dog Day!

2. Donate or volunteer at your local shelter

  • You can donate money but you can also donate blankets, food, toys, and more!

3. Stand up against puppy mills

  • Encourage friends and community members to adopt their next dog from a shelter rather than buying them from a pet store.
  • Write a letter to your congressman advocating the ban of puppy mills in your state.

4. Throw a National Dog Day party and playdate for the dogs in your community

I love dressing my dog up! The costumes don't stay on for long, but long enough for a cute photo!

Oh my gosh. This is so cute, but I think my dog would kill me if I dressed him up.

Even if you're a cat person, you can't deny this cuteness!
