Happy National Mutt Day!

Happy National Mutt Day!

Each year on July 31st and December 2nd, National Mutt Day is celebrated across the United States. This day was created as a day to embrace, save and celebrate mixed breed dogs. Desperately longing for a new home, millions of loving and healthy mixed breed dogs in shelters across the United States are waiting for someone to come and adopt them.  Visit a shelter, if you are unable to adopt a dog, you can always volunteer, donate needed shelter items (dog treats, food, toys, etc.), or donate money. Post on social media using #NationalMuttDay and encourage others to join in.

National Mutt Day, an “unofficial” national holiday, was created in 2005 by Celebrity Pet Expert and Animal Welfare Advocate, Colleen Paige. This day is celebrated on both December 2 and July 31 of each year. While “Rocky” (featured in the video) might not be a mutt, you might think about how a gym dog could benefit your program and athletes.
