Today is #NationalPuppyDay. A day that fills our social media feeds with pictures of adorable puppies from across the globe. What’s better than that?
But behind the cute pics, there’s a deeper meaning. National Puppy Day was created in 2006 by home and lifestyle expert, Colleen Paige, “to help save orphaned puppies across the globe and educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills. According to the ASPCA, 3.9 million dogs enter shelters each year. Sadly, many of those are euthanized.
We’ve often talked about our commitment to working with shelters and adoption agencies to raise awareness of the shelter situation and get more pups into forever homes. As we move forward with our plans to do this, today provides a perfect opportunity for you to help too. Stop by your local shelter and play with a pup, or do a bit of your own research and share what you learn to help raise awareness for just how many dogs are in shelters today waiting for a chance to be loved.
Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t give you a look at some of the most adorable puppies available to borrow today on the Bark’N’Borrow platform! So share this post and spread the “omg’s”, “aww’s”, but most importantly, the cause.
