August 26 is National Dog Day, a day to celebrate dogs and encourage adoption.
“I founded National Dog Day in 2004 to honor dogs, to give them ‘a day,’ to show our deep appreciation for the historical connection of companionship with one another – for their endearing patience, unquestioning loyalty, for their work protecting our streets, homes and families as Police K-9’s, Military Working Dogs, Guide Dogs and Therapy Dogs,” says National Dog Day founder Colleen Paige. “They are wonderful and viable sentient beings that deserve compassion and respect. Please consider adopting on National Day!”
To celebrate, send us photos of your canine companions and we’ll add them to our photo gallery.
