May 20th Adopt a Dog Day

May 20th Adopt a Dog Day

blog title

Every May 20th signifies National Adopt a Dog Day.  It started in 2009 by an organization called Tails that Teach which is working in development of kindness, compassion and empathy towards dogs.  The day is designed to bring awareness about the rescued dogs in shelters that are waiting for their forever homes.  Many of these dogs will become emotional support dogs for many of their new owners.

History of National Rescue Dog Day

This day was initially inspired by a rescue dog named Cooper back in 2009 when his owner went into a burning house to rescue Cooper.

The ASPCA reports that approximately 3.3 million dogs enter shelters every year and many of these dogs are just looking for owners that will care for them.  In return, these dogs provide comfort, love and affection to their new families.

Many of these rescued dogs have the character to become service dogs and emotional support animals.  Dogs shower their families with love and affection making them ideal emotional support animals.  As per Tails That Teach, as emotional support companions, rescue dogs help to relieve anxiety, depression, and PTSD among the military or those who suffer from mental illness. Thus, the main aim of marking this day is also to encourage people to adopt the rescued dogs rather than buying dogs of a specific breed.

  1. My girl is 13 she is extremely healthy but she is a bullie breed im nit sure of their life expectancy. We had a our boy who really helped us with her out of the horrible mental state she was in from hoarding and being breed from her previous owner. He got cancer 5 years ago. It devastated me. But i would not of surrvived im affraid if i didnt have her. She isnt that same scared timid shy pup that she was when she came in our luves and my heart. She actually has saved me. She knows she is special. Its in her walk her attitude .. She makes eveyone notice her without barking a huff.. I fear the day god calls her home.. Husband and i wonder if we should go ahead now and adopt. I have time. We are qualified in our personality and demeanor and responsibility. We are not rich in finances we are buying our place. But it not fensed ( im home all day able to take outside as often as needed. When nice out my girl and i often enjoy pinicing together. ) most all places are asking 200.00 to adopt . that’s a bit high. We have established vet and pet credit care. Id rather put money invested in health of a new paw kid. Not at once during adoption. We paid 75 for our guy at 1st and 50 at first for her. I dpnt want a pup from a breeder. Cause i know their are so many un homed babies. I did alot of rehoming when we lived in country. I have training skills . we dont believe in feeding our babes just any ol food. Can any one please advise or direct us in the right direction for approval of adoption( no fenced in yard) and avoid the higher adoption fees. I have no objection to paying for spayed or neutered of pet we home. Shots ect.

It was great, I got a phone call with 1-2 days and then an email shortly after with my complete letter. The whole process was fast and went smoothly. I was able to forward the letter right to my landlord. Overall a great experience!
