Happy National Puppy Day!

Did you know?

National Puppy DayDid you know today was National Puppy Day? It is usually held on March 23, but that would have been Sunday, and many animal shelters are closed on Sundays. So National Puppy Day is today but will be celebrated throughout the weekend by everyone who loves dogs and wants to see each and every one in a forever home providing unconditional love.

My top 15 ways to celebrate National Puppy Day:

  1. Adopt a puppy from your local shelter or pure breed rescue organization.
  2. Donate money, food and toys to your local shelter.
  3. Have a puppy party and invite all your friends and their puppies!
  4. Host a community event to raise money for your local animal shelter.
  5. Volunteer at your local shelter and offer to walk a puppy or play with a puppy, clean cages or anything else they need help with.
  6. Have a tee shirt made with your puppy’s photo on it.
  7. Two women and two dogs at the beachTake your puppy to the beach.
  8. Hire a pet photographer to capture your puppy’s fleeting moments.
  9. Microchip & I.D. Tag your puppy so the shelter can locate you if he gets lost.
  10. Teach your children and their friends to be kind to your puppy by never pulling on his ears or tail.
  11. Pledge to walk your puppy every day for proper health and behavior management.
  12. Take your puppy to an elderly community and spread some love.
  13. If you like your puppy to snuggle in bed with you, buy him some puppy steps to make it easy for him to join you.
  14. Pledge to never chain your puppy to a tree or doghouse. Always include your puppy in your family by letting it live inside the home with you.
  15. And last but not least, pledge to never yell at or hit your puppy, to be patient and kind, and give your puppy lots of love and praise every day.
