National Dog Day (USA)

On August 26, 2022

About the event:

The aim of promoting this day is to raise awareness about adopting these animals who are currently in rescue centers. In addition, on this day promote dog ownership of all breeds, pure and mix.

History of National Dog Day

This holiday was created in 2004 by Colleen Paige, a Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate.

She created this day so that all dogs can be celebrated and also to draw attention to the number of dogs in shelters and to encourage adoption to those who have yet to find a place to call home.

August 26 is significant to Colleen because it is the day her family adopted her Sheltie when she was 10 years old. Since the first celebration in 2004, National Dog Day has grown and is now celebrated across the world.

In 2013 the holiday was written into New York legislation and can be seen on the New York State Senate’s website.

Who, where and when:

  • When: August, 26th
