An Op-paw-tunity to Give Back : National Puppy Day
Put your paws together for National Puppy Day
Has your heart been craving the love and comfort of a furry friend? Take part in this paw-some opportunity by getting involved with the Toledo Area Humane Society for National Puppy Day Saturday, March 23rd. Established in 2006 by Celebrity Pet & Home Lifestyle Expert and Author, Colleen Paige, National Puppy Day has been celebrated with the adoption of numerous orphaned puppies around the world. From humble beginnings, to becoming a nationally celebrated holiday, Colleen’s goals has been focused on spreading the love and educating individuals on the horrors of puppy mills. Be a part of this bark-tastic holiday and spread your love of puppies by visiting local shelters and adopting a pup of your very own!
We decided to try something a bit different for this blog, that we hope to continue as we move through 2019. We wanted to introduce to you our first vlog! Hopefully one of many more, we chose to collaborate with the local Toledo Area Humane Society. The TAHS is open Monday – Friday from 12 – 6pm with special hours on the weekend from 12 – 5pm. Adoption hours run during their time of public operation. Don’t be afraid to call 410-891-0705 or visit their main office at 827 Illinois Ave, Maumee, OH. The TAHS is home to tons of cats, dogs, puppies, kittens and other pocket sized pets that receive proper health treatment, and are waiting to find a forever home! They offer many other services from child summer camps, animal surrender/adoption, a pet merchandise store, fostering and more! For more information on adoption, donation, or dogs in general you can visit Give a Dog a Home, a local facebook page that works with TAHS.
National Puppy Day is a special time of year to spread love and awareness about pet safety. Take part this year by snapping a picture of you and your furry favorite using the hashtags #nationalpuppyday and #puppyday on your social media. Happy National Puppy Day!
