You Can Take Part in National Rescue Dog Day
Saturday, May 20th marks National Rescue Dog Day, a special day dedicated to honoring and raising awareness about rescue animals.
NBC10’s Erin Colman recently spoke with the Pennsylvania SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to delve into why rescue dogs make such loving pets.
During the interview, Lindsay from the Pennsylvania SPCA shared the story of a remarkable dog that had been with them since November 2021.
This dog, along with 32 others, was rescued from a dogfighting ring, highlighting the challenging circumstances many rescue animals face before finding their forever homes.
Despite the difficult past, the shelter has been providing exceptional care to the dog, and he has displayed a wonderful demeanor.
However, he requires a specific home environment where he can be the only pet, live with older teenagers, and be handled by someone experienced with dogs.
The Pennsylvania SPCA emphasized the uniqueness and suitability of every rescue dog, mentioning that they have a pet for every type of family, whether individuals, families with children, or households of different sizes.
The interview touched upon the phrase “adopt, don’t shop,” which promotes the idea of adopting animals from shelters or rescues instead of purchasing from breeders or pet stores.
The Pennsylvania SPCA encouraged people to consider adopting dogs or other animals in need of homes, highlighting the urgent need for foster families and full-time adopters.
By adopting, individuals have the opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of these animals, offering them a chance at a loving and forever home.
National Rescue Dog Day serves as a reminder to support animal shelters and rescues in their mission to save and care for animals.
Whether through adoption, fostering, or spreading awareness, individuals can participate in this meaningful event and contribute to the well-being of rescue dogs everywhere.

Together, we can make a positive impact on the lives of rescue animals and celebrate their resilience and capacity for love.
