26 August – Dog Day
Today is Dog Day! Dogs have been “man’s best friend” for over 15000 years. We rely on our wonderful canine companions to keep us safe, bring us comfort, and love us unconditionally. Dog Day is our opportunity to show our deep appreciation for these remarkable animals and to find homes for all of the dogs in need of a loving family.
To celebrate Dog Day, adopt a dog from your local shelter, organise a play date for all the dogs in your neighbourhood, or treat your dog to a new toy.
