National Dog Day is August 26th. It is a day that brings awareness to a lot of issues involving dogs. At Mountain View Veterinary Clinic in Tucson, AZ, we want to celebrate National Dog Day by ensuring that your dog is healthy and happy. We provide wellness exams to check your pet’s health. Here are some other things to consider on National Dog Day.
Dogs do a lot to improve our lives. In general, they provide comfort, joy, and companionship. There are working dogs in a number of different industries that help people in enormous ways. There are guide dogs that help people to live more inclusive lives, and working dogs that are trained to provide everything from bomb sniffing to therapy. National Dog Day is a good day to remember all of the wonderful things that dogs can do for us.
There are a lot of dogs that don't have homes, and National Dog Day is a good day to remember that as well. If you or someone you know is considering getting a dog, adopt from a shelter. Shelter dogs need loving homes and often don’t get the attention they deserve.
Volunteer for Dogs
National Dog Day is also a great day for volunteering or making plans to volunteer with a local foster group or animal shelter. Animal shelters can always use volunteers to help care for the animals and assist in adoptions. Local fostering groups always need foster owners to take care of a dog until it is adopted. All of these are much-needed services that many people can perform to give back to the community. You may even find that you want to keep volunteering regularly.
