Dog Appreciation Day is celebrated every year on August 26 and aims to raise awareness about dog misuse and abandonment. On this day, people honor the significance of the furry friends currently in rescue centers and support the adoption of dogs of all breeds. Sadly, millions of dogs each year become homeless because their owners can’t take care of them. National Dog Appreciation Day encourages adoption and providing rescue dogs with a loving and secure environment.

The holiday is for all dogs, be they mixed or thoroughbred, small or big. Established by animal behaviorist and author Colleen Paige in 2004, this observational holiday allows dog lovers to focus on celebrating their canine companions and join forces with others who fight to end puppy mills and stop breed-specific legislation.

How to Celebrate Dog Appreciation Day

This August 26, make it a special day to spend with your dog or treat them with new toys or snacks. If you don’t have a dog of your own, look for opportunities to volunteer with a local dog shelter or welfare organization. Take this opportunity to reconnect with your puppy and consider how you can help society understand the significance of dogs and how they are treated. Have fun, cuddle, and enjoy #DogAppreciationDay
