National Puppy Day is observed each year on March 23rd. This special day helps celebrate the unconditional love and affection puppies bring to our lives. Their cuddles and wiggles make us smile and without a doubt, there are squeals of delight when there are puppies around!
With the onset of COVID-19, many animal shelters are filled with puppies (as well as other animals) that are looking for fur-ever homes. The day also brings awareness to the need for care of and homes for orphaned pups as well as to educate people about the horrors of puppy mills across the country. Puppies are a big responsibility. Be sure to consider everything involved and adopt from a shelter. The puppies there need love and a home just as much as any other and they grow into loyal pets.
According to the ASPCA, approximately 3.3 million dogs enter shelters every year. Some of these dogs come with litters of puppies. For families that are seeking a puppy to start your furry family, check the shelters first. When these abandoned and abused animals find their way to a shelter, each one needs a forever home and their potential is limitless.
SHARE: Please post the best photo of your puppy on our site. People need to smile.
NOTE: Many shelters are looking for volunteers to assist with local animals in feeding and walking or to be available for pets to have that human companionship.
