National Mutt Day

 

National Mutt Day: July 31

 

Today is the 15th anniversary of National Mutt Day in Charlotte, and everywhere else for that matter.  National Mutt Day was created in 2005 by animal welfare advocate, Colleen Paige, to raise awareness of the plight of mixed breed dogs in shelters all over the country and to educate the public about the millions of mixed breed dogs desperately awaiting their "fur-ever" homes.

 

National Mutt Day, is the perfect day to visit your local shelter and adopt a mixed breed dog. My dogs have all been mixed breeds and have all come from our local shelter in Charlotte. Without doubt, they have been the best, smartest, and healthiest dogs we've owned. But I wouldn't want anyone to think I'm biased! When peoplewould ask what our dogs' breeds were, my answer has always been  "a pedigree mutt." I guess you could call me an Official Mutt Lover! 

 

There are great benefits to choosing a Mutt over a purebred dog and one of the most important ones is longevity. Mixed breed dogs tend to live longer and have healthier lives than purebreds. Purebreed dogs can be prone to certain breed-specific diseases. Mutts are often healthier because they have a more diverse gene pool than purebreeds. Genes from one specific breed can cancel out disease-causing genes in another. The result is a healthier dog which lives longer. And I've seen it first-hand... our mixed breed, Gracie, lived a very healthy life to the age of 15. Now, we have Bingo, who is as smart and sweet and healthy as they come!

 

HOW TO HELP/SUPPORT NATIONAL MUTT DAY IF YOU CAN'T ADOPT TODAY:
 

If adopting a mutt today is out of the question for you, there are other ways you can show your support on National Mutt Day:

  • Volunteer to walk a dog.

  • Donate food and other needed supplies to your local animal shelter. 

  • Make a donation to your local shelter in the memory of a loved dog who has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

 

Latka has a message for you just for National Mutt Day. Have a listen!

 

 

Listen to Latka! Here's a list of just three places where you can give a mixed breed dog in Charlotte its fur-ever home on National Mutt Day.

 

Colleen Paige, the founder of National Mutt Day said it perfectly:

 

In every heart, there is a hole.
In every shelter, there is love in which to fill it.

Roy Kelley thanks, Roy, for the good weekend wishes. It's Monday morning and it's the first time since Friday that I've been able to log onto the Rain. And it's still moving so slowly, after I respond to the comments on this post, I'm "outta here." Just don't have enough patience or hours in my day to try to navigate the site.

I'm a bit late to this party but I wanted to add my two cents that every dog I've owned has been a "mutt". Also every one of those mutts had great temperments and were wonderful pets Nina Hollander .
