National Puppy Day

National Puppy Day is an American holiday dedicated to little furry lumps of happiness. A huge number of people around the world are being moved by pictures of puppies. What could be nicer? The holiday is celebrated annually on March 23.


The history of National Puppy Day begins in 2006. Colleen Page made a corresponding proposal for the creation of the holiday. She knows the ins and outs of raising pets and helps owners find a common language with them. The purpose of the holiday is to raise public awareness about the problem of the growing number of homeless dogs, as well as to motivate people to take home a new fluffy friend. The best way to do this is with the help of a shelter. This way, you will take responsibility for the animal’s life and make room for new dogs.

Colleen Page has been able to bring a great many people to the attention of dog shelters. Thanks to the holiday, thousands of little puppies have found homes. Dog owners must understand their responsibility to the animal. Situations vary, but as a result of a move or the death of an owner, animals are often left alone on the street. You can’t do that to those who are attached to you. Dogs are not people, they cannot betray, they remain faithful to their owners throughout their lives. Don’t hurt them!

How to celebrate
