Get Social

Share photos of your dog as a puppy or share posts of puppies that are up for adoption. Make sure to use the hashtag #NationalPuppyDay so that more people can see your post!

Adopt a Puppy

If there's room in your heart and home for one more, stop by your local shelter and see what puppies are available for adoption. You can also look into breeders if your heart is set on a specific breed of puppy/


Even if you cannot add another pet to your home, you can still celebrate national puppy day by volunteering some time with the puppies and dogs that need love at your local shelter. You can walk, groom and play with them. If you're feeling up to it, stop by some of the felines, too!

Check if your veterinarian needs any help, too! 


Donating to your local shelter or animal group is the perfect way to celebrate on March 23rd. Your goods or money will help multiple puppies until they find their forever homes.

Visit the Dog Park

If you have a local dog park, you can head there on National Puppy Day. Introduce your pup to dogs of all ages. Start a conversation with other dog lovers, too. If you see any rambunctious pups, you might take a photo and post it on social media with the hashtag.

Buy Treats

Of course, we can't forget the number one way to celebrate National Puppy Day: do something nice for your pup. Buy some tasty new treats or accessories for your K-9!
