dog day

National Dog Day is a way for people to recognize all of the homeless pets needing to be rescued each year. Dogs put their lives on the line every day – for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for a child who is disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage. Please take today to really appreciate your furry loved ones. There are many ways to show them your appreciation and extra love today…
