NATIONAL MUTT DAY
Each year on July 31st and December 2nd, National Mutt Day is observed across the United States. National Mutt Day encourages us 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.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Visit a shelter, if you are unable to adopt a dog, you can always volunteer. Post on social media using #NationalMuttDay and encourage others to join in.
National Mutt Day 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.
