National Dog Day

Mortgage and Lending with FHA, VA, Jumbo, Downpayment Assistance, Conv. NMLS #276329
National Dog Day has two goals: to honor dogs, and to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse. It's an opportunity for us to recognize and appreciate the value and importance of dogs in our lives.
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. They lead the blind. Dogs aid in search and rescue, and they seek out bombs and drugs.
The second goal of National Dog Day is to rescue dogs in need. On occasion, dogs need us to save them from homelessness and abuse. The goal of the National Dog Day foundation is to rescue 10,000 dogs a year. Lend a hand to help a dog in need today, or any day.
The motto for today is: "Saving 10,000 Dogs - One Day at a Time".
National Dog Day was created in 2004 by animal welfare advocate and Pet Lifestyle Expert Colleen Paige. The date was chosen, as this was the date the founder's father got the first family dog.
