History of National Dog Day
National Dog Day was created in 2004 by animal advocate and pet expert Coleen Paige. The aim of this day is to raise awareness about the number of dogs that are currently in shelters and encourage the adoption of these animals. An estimated 78 million dogs are owned as pets in the United States. However, every year, 3.3 million dogs enter shelters and 670,000 are euthanized.
