Celebrate National Puppy Day!

Did you know that National Puppy Day is on March 23rd?

National Puppy Day celebrates the unconditional love that puppies bring to people’s lives, and encourages adopting orphaned puppies from across the globe.

March 23rd is a great opportunity to educate people about puppy mills and the many concerns related to them. This initiative began in 2006 and become an international celebration.

According to the National Puppy Day fact sheet, there are approximately 500-600 million dogs, including strays, throughout the world. It is estimated there are 2.11 million puppies sold from puppy mills.

How can you celebrate?

  • Visit an animal shelter and adopt a dog in need.
  • Spread awareness by tagging #nationalpuppyday and #puppyday on social media
  • Watch documentaries like Dog by DOg, Madonna of the Hills, and I’m Alive to learn more about the realities of puppy mills
  • Donate your time or money to a local animal shelter or an organization that supports stray animals. There is always a need for help walking, feeding, playing with, and cleaning up after the pets.

“A dog is the only thing on Earth that loves you more than he loves himself”. – Josh Billings, famous humorist.
