National Rescue Dog Day in
Days to go:
National Rescue Dog Day is a dedicated commemoration that brings public awareness to the countless number of dogs in need of adoption. Focusing on the plight of rescue dogs, it encourages the humane act of adopting dogs from shelters and rescue centers. These frequently overlooked dogs are just as capable of providing love, companionship and security. This observance also underscores the additional benefits that rescue dogs bring. Such include the improvement of human wellbeing through the promotion of an active lifestyle, reduction of stress levels, and even assistance in detecting health risks such as seizures and cancer.
The establishment of National Rescue Dog Day was prompted by the life-changing story of a rescued pit bull named Pepper in May of 2013. Pepper’s adoptive family in America recognized her intelligence and intuition, inspiring them to have her trained as a certified therapy dog. Her story runs parallel with many others across America, where an adopted rescue dog offers not just companionship, but various forms of assistance like therapeutic and disability services thus enriching the quality of life of their adopters.
National Rescue Dog Day is observed across America through a range of initiatives that promote the adoption of rescue dogs. Individuals and communities participate in this observance by visiting shelters to learn about the process of adopting a dog. Furthermore, educating oneself and others about the importance of spaying and neutering is encouraged to control the unwanted population of dogs. In terms of advocacy, people are urged to share success stories and give voice to the dogs still needing rescuing. This observance is held annually on May 20th.
