March 23 is National Puppy Day!

Is your social media feed being overloaded with cuteness today????

No wonder, it’s National Puppy Day!

Puppies!National Puppy Day is a celebration of the unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives. National Puppy Day was founded in 2006 as a way to raise awareness of the plight of puppies from puppy mills, and to help save orphaned puppies by encouraging adoption.

So what can you do to help on National Puppy Day?

  • Visit an animal shelter and adopt a puppy in need. Most cities have a local shelter where you can visit and adopt a pet in the same day. Remember to spay or neuter your pet in order to control the stray dog population. Most shelters will do that for you; if not, we can help.
  • Spread awareness by using the hashtags #nationalpuppyday and #puppyday on social media and also share pictures of your dog or pictures of dogs you like.
  • Watch the documentaries I’m Alive (2008), Madonna of the Mills (2010), and Dog By Dog (2015) to learn more about the realities of puppy mills.
  • Donate your time or money to a local animal shelter, rescue, or an organization that supports stray animals. There is always a need for help walking, feeding, playing with and cleaning up after the animals. You can also make a financial donation to national organizations such as ASPCA and the Humane Society, or the AZ Humane Society.

Give your pup – young or old – a loving squeeze from us today!
