It’s National Dog Day!

This Saturday is going to the dogs as pet owners everywhere celebrate National Dog Day!

National Dog Day celebrates dogs of all breeds and ages.

It was founded in 2004 by Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate Colleen Page, who is also the founder of National Puppy Day, National Mutt Day and National Cat Day.

The goal of National Dog Day is to encourage adoption and help the public recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year.

National Dog Day was adopted into New York State Legislature in 2013.
