National Dog Day is celebrated August 26th annually and was founded in 2004 by Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige. It serves to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep people safe and bring comfort. The date of August 26th is significant, as it's the date that Colleen's family adopted her first dog "Sheltie" when Colleen was 10 years old.
The care and feeding of pets has become a multi-billion dollar industry. Use this event as the centerpiece to a week-long promotion for dog lovers. Give readers the chance to brag about their dog with an online photo gallery. See the MCC Images Library for great dog photos, and the Spec Ads & Covers Library for relevant ads.
