National Puppy Day in
Days to go:
National Puppy Day not only celebrates the unconditional love puppies offer but also encourages people to adopt instead of purchasing from pet shops. Primarily observed in the United States, it has gained acknowledgement worldwide including Australia, drawing attention to the plight of orphaned puppies and promoting responsible pet ownership. The observance prompts Australian animal advocates and organisations to educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills while advocating adoption over the course of this day.
National Puppy Day was founded in 2006 by Colleen Paige, a pet and family lifestyle expert from the United States, with the goal of improving the lives of puppies in need. Its recognition in Australia brings significant relevance, given the issues faced by puppies around the country. For instance, each year in Australia, thousands of unwanted puppies end up in shelters or need to be rehomed. It is a day that draws attention to these issues, and the need for Australians to consider adopting a puppy from a shelter rather than buying one from a pet store or a breeder.
In Australia, National Puppy Day is observed with various activities such as fundraising events, puppy parades, and educational programs organized by animal welfare organisations and advocacy groups. Schools often arrange activities and workshops focussed on responsible pet ownership. Social media also plays a significant role in spreading awareness on the day using the hashtag #NationalPuppyDay. Although primarily celebrated in the United States on March 23rd, Australians too mark this day with similar zeal, aiming to bring about a positive change in the lives of puppies across the nation.
