August 26 is National Dog Day. Founded in 2004 by pet lifestyle expert and author Colleen Paige, National Dog Day was created to honor our furry friends. It raises awareness about pooches that need to be rescued while celebrating family and service dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Shower your mutt with extra love and make sure to do a good deed for dogs today. Consider volunteering or making a donation to your local shelter. How do you plan to celebrate?
