In what might be the least divisive holiday ever, today is National Puppy Day.

Founded in 2006 by author and animal behaviorist, Colleen Paige, National Puppy Day celebrates the unconditional love and magical joy puppies bring into our lives. Most importantly, though, National Puppy Day is a day to save the lives of homeless puppies everywhere by educating the public about the horrors of puppy mills, and working to realize the goal of  eliminating pet stores that sell puppies.

This holiday, as well as National Dog Day and National Cat Day (also founded by Paige) help comprise her Animal Miracle Foundation and Network (AMF), an all-volunteer non-profit organization that works to educate the public about wildlife conservation, animal cruelty, homeless pets, and pet overpopulation. To this end, AMF hosts many trade shows and festivals throughout the year, bringing local shelter pets and promoting adoption efforts.

To celebrate National Puppy Day, I’m planning on giving my two rescued dogs even more hugs than usual. How will you celebrate?
