Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

Tails That Teach

Tails That Teach founded National Rescue Dog Day on May 20 to honor the inspiring ways rescue dogs become apart of the human family and increase awareness about the number of dogs in shelters. Given a chance, they would fill their forever homes with unconditional love and unabandoned joy with every belly rub.

Lisa Wiehebrink, author and founder of Tails That Teach, wrote Love Me Gently; A Kid’s Guide for Man’s Best Friend, inspired by Cooper, her rescue dog from a Los Angeles shelter. 

The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Rescue Dog Day to be observed annually beginning in 2018.
