While definitely the cutest celebration of the year, National Puppy Day also has a serious angle to it. It was founded by Celebrity Pet & Home Lifestyle Expert and Author Colleen Paige to bring awareness to orphaned pups and to educate people about the horrors of puppy mills across the country.

Use this opportunity to learn more about the issue, spread the word by using #NationalPuppyDay, adopt a dog from a local shelter, or simply give puppy a hug. Because they much deserve it!
