Whether you have a champion show dog with prestigious bloodlines, or you found your best furry friend at the local shelter, every dog is a dog worthy of love and attention. Show us your dog on National Dog Day and tell us why your dog is the best dog on Earth!
National Dog Day is August 26
National Dog Day takes place annually on August 26th. This holiday, also known as World Dog Day, International Dog Day and National Dog Appreciation Day, was founded to spread awareness about the dogs needing rescue each year. National Dog Day also recognizes how dogs enrich our lives — whether working as law enforcement partners, helping children and adults with disabilities, protecting us in the military or simply staying by our sides as the companions we know and love.
Dogs of all kinds bring unlimited love and trust to every relationship. Whereas humans live lives filled with work, friendships and family, dogs devote their lives entirely to us. The founders of National Dog Day believe dogs of all kinds deserve a safe, happy and “abuse-free” lifestyle.
