    National Dog Day is August 26

    by Pamela Fitzpatrick

    This year, National Dog Day falls on Wednesday August 26.  This day to celebrate our canine friends was created by the National Dog Day Foundation http://www.sayville.com/banners/Yourdog_appaws.jpgwith a motto of “Saving 10,000 dogs one day at a time”.  The goal is to save 10,000 abused and homeless dogs every year.

    NDD was established in 2004.    The organization has two goals; in addition to honoring mans best friend, and rescuing dogs from homelessness and abuse.

    If you want to show your appreciation and love for your dog, what better way to express it than making a small donation to a local shelter or rescue group?  If action suits you better, consider volunteering – there are so many local options!
