National Puppy Day

Observed each year on March 23rd is National Puppy Day.  National Puppy Day will be celebrated on the Friday or Monday closest to March 23rd if that day falls on a weekend.  

This day was created to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives.  National Puppy Day is also a day to bring awareness to the need for care of and homes for orphaned pups as well as to educate people about the horrors of puppy mills across the country.
