National Puppy Day is a special day to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives. But more importantly, it’s a day to help save orphaned puppies across the globe and educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills, as well as further our mission for a nation of puppy-free pet stores. National Puppy Day was founded in 2006 by Celebrity Pet & Home Lifestyle Expert and Author, Colleen Paige, who is also the founder of National Dog Day and National Cat Day (among many others).
National Puppy Day is actually considered an international holiday now, as it’s trended worldwide on Twitter in 2012 & 2013. Colleen Paige has devoted her life to creating special days of recognition that improve the lives of animals and their people. (http://www.nationalpuppyday.com)
