It's National Make A Dog's Day

Of course, adoption is just one way to make a dog’s day. And here are easy ways to make your dog's day:

Going for an extra-long walk would make their day. Visiting the dog park. Getting him or her a new chew toy.. Sometimes, they just want to play. Throw the ball already!

While those ideas probably come to mind with ease, some other ideas are just as important.

  • Regular check-ups. Check with your veterinarian for the schedule that fits your dog.
  • Vaccinations. Different schedules apply depending on where you live.
  • Spay or neuter your pet. Besides overpopulation, there are major health benefits.

Back to shelters and adopting: If the timing isn’t quite right, all are welcome to stop by a shelter and volunteer. Just by taking a shelter dog for a walk or bringing them a new chew toy, you’ll make their day. New blankets or treats are always welcome, too. Check your local shelter’s website for a list of needs. Each shelter takes donations, and their requirements vary depending on the time of year.
