Aug. 26 is National Dog Day!

Aug. 26 is National Dog Day! It was established in 2004 in an effort to bring attention to the number of dogs in need of a home. According to the ASPCA, about 3 million dogs enter shelters nationwide every year. The date is significant to National Dog Day founder Colleen Paige because it was the same day she adopted her first dog when she was a little girl.
