2013 National Dog Day

August 16, 2013 in Aerowood Animal Hospital

National Dog Day, held annually on August 26th, is quickly approaching. Founded in 2004, the day was created to honor dogs for their love, friendship, loyalty, work and more. It is a whole day dedicated to dogs of all breeds, shapes, and sizes. In addition, National Dog Day seeks to bring awareness to the local shelters and rescue groups that are overflowing with pups just waiting for a home. August 26th is the perfect day to adopt a new pet or donate to those shelters or groups.
