AND Today is National Puppy Day
This is the day that we celebrate our favorite furry friends and most reliable companions, the little K-9s! Colleen Paige declared the first National Puppy Day in 2006 not only to celebrate how absolutely adorable they are but to raise awareness about the horrors of puppy mills.
Over 8,000 puppy mills and “backyard breeders” supply the nation’s pet stores in America. Imagine how many dogs are kept in horrible conditions and are often killed when they’re no longer fertile. Some states have passed legislation prohibiting stores from selling puppy mill puppies , and only 'sell' or adopt animals from shelters. Wondering how you can help? “Adopt instead of Shop!” as National Puppy Day organizers would say!
