National Dog Adoption Day 2019

Dogs bring so much joy and truly make a house a home, but unfortunately hundreds of thousands are still waiting for their forever homes in rescue centres across the country. This year welcomes the UK’s first National Dog Adoption Day all thanks to K9 Magazine and DogsBlog.

What is National Dog Adoption Day?

On 25th October 2019, National Dog Adoption Day aims to provide a platform to debunk the myths about rescue dogs and to get people telling their pooch’s stories. Some would never have even thought about dog adoption, but these conversations will allow people to familiarise themselves with the concept and learn about the advantages of rescuing a dog.

What are the aims of National Dog Adoption Day?

Through events, promotions and a big push to get everyone involved, National Dog Adoption Day hope to have a positive impact for the dogs waiting for their forever homes in rescue centres. Here are just some of their aims:

  • To promote the idea of adopting a dog
  • To help advise people on how to adopt a dog
  • To provide information on how to properly care for a dog
  • To encourage the idea of a responsible owner
  • To help raise the profile of local centres and organisations in their communities
  • To share the benefits and positives of owning a rescue dog
  • To provide advice on how to overcome behavioural problems
