International Dog Day 2021: Pets and Family Lifestyle and Animal Rescue Advocate Colleen Paige launched International Dog Day in the US in 2004 as National Dog Day.
The dog has always been considered a good friend to man. August 26 is International Dog Day and is celebrated by dogs of any breed. International Dog Day is often celebrated to attract today’s dog companions’ attention and promote their adoption. This is a day to recognize how these dogs are important parts of our lives and help those abandoned.
What is the history and significance of this day?
Pets and Family Lifestyle and Animal Rescue Advocate Colleen Paige launched International Dog Day in the US in 2004 as National Dog Day. She chose August 26 because it was the date her family adopted their dog shelter at the animal care home. She founded this day to convey the importance of protecting dogs and providing them with a safe environment as a token of appreciation. This day is celebrated by all dogs, whether mixed breed or purebred. The day promotes the adoption of dogs and strongly opposes the idea of buying dogs from pet stores.
How to celebrate International Dog Day?
Pampering your little furry friends is always a bonus for them but here are some ways to make your dog day more special. Celebrating International Dog Day is nothing more than showing your dog friend how much you love him. Spending time, treating them with their favorite food or toys is a gesture you can adopt today.
International Dog Day is not limited to people who have dogs, but also people who do not have the right to have their own dog friends, they can adopt a dog from welfare organizations or volunteer for them. Adopting a dog is a great way to show your sympathy for these little creatures and help them find shelter.
Reach for the dogs on the street and provide them with food and if possible help them go to nearby shelters or welfare institutions specially made for them.
While International Dog Day is usually about spoiling your little dog friends, it’s okay to celebrate it with other humans as well. Send gifts, it will also remind them to celebrate. Additionally, always have photos with your hairy friends and click on them to remember them.
