National Rescue Dog Day History

National Rescue Dog Day seeks to raise awareness about all the dogs waiting to be adopted in shelters. This day aims to encourage adoption, promote humane education, and encourage pet owners to spay/neuter their pets. It highlights the mutual benefit of owning a rescued dog. Rescued dogs are provided with a loving home, and in return, they can provide comfort and security to their owners.

National Rescue Dog Day was created in 2018 by Tails That Teach, Inc. It is observed annually on May 20th.
