  • Celebrate National Dog Day!photo of happy dog in a pool

    August 26 is National Dog Day! This day is intended to honor dogs for all that they do for us. In addition to giving love and companionship, dogs help us out in countless ways. They are watchdogs for our safety, service animals, aid in search and rescue, and much more. National Dog Day has two goals: to honor dogs already in our lives, and to rescue dogs. It's an opportunity for us to recognize and appreciate the value and importance of dogs in our lives.
