So, what exactly is this annual event? Well it was founded in 2004 by pet lifestyle expert and author Colleen Paige and was created to honor our four legged friends for all that they do. This special day also serves to help the public recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year.
Spend the day celebrating your furry friends and remember the number of animals that help our society every day. Say thank you to your puppy pal with a game of fetch, a tasty dog treat or maybe just a big hug.
