History of International Dog Day

Colleen Paige who is a dog lover and animal advocate has founded National Dog Day in 2004 in the United State. This day was adopted into legislation in the state of New York in 2013. August 26 was the day she adopted her first dog when she was 10 years old and that’s the reason she chose this day.

Proudly express your love for your dog officially on this national holiday! Up until today, many other countries have embraced International Dog Day. Shop a pair of puppy earrings as a gift for yourself or your dog-lover friends to celebrate this day now.

Why Are We Celebrating International Dog Day?

The purpose to celebrate International dog day is to raise awareness of the condition of animals and to encourage pet adoption. Nevertheless, to celebrate our friendly puppies and doggies!

Four Reasons to Celebrate International Dog Day

Dog Lover’s Story: @HilaryKennedy

“We adopted them through a rescue organization and learned they were found in a hoarder’s home with at least 40 other dogs in deplorable conditions. They were shuffled around to several foster homes before coming home with us for good. The gratitude and love they show us each day warms our hearts.”
