National Dog Day – August 26th
Over 15,000 years ago, a lone hunter came across an injured wolf and aided the animal by nursing him back to health.
Or so the theory goes. One thing is for sure, that when early humans domesticated wolves they formed a friendship that has endured the test of time.
National Dog Day is celebrated August 26th annually and was founded in 2004 to bring attention to the plight of animals around the globe and encourage adoption.
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.
