National Puppy Day Advocates for Awareness

National Puppy Day

95% of pet owners readily admit to buying gifts for their pets – whether birthday or Christmas, over $60 billion per year is spent on our furry friends. Obviously, pets play an important role in our lives – but not all animals experience the same level of love.

National Puppy Day is observed on March 23, and although it is at heart a celebration of the dogs, organizers also hope to promote awareness about the need for shelter adoption. Thousands of workers and volunteers are dedicating to finding homes for rescue dogs against all odds. If you are an animal lover and would like to thank these special people for all they do on behalf of the puppies, Gordon Boswell Flowers is happy to create beautiful custom floral designs they will love.
National Puppy DayThere is a huge overpopulation problem in the United States. Sadly, only 10% of the dogs born will find a permanent home – in fact, homeless animals outnumber homeless people 5 to 1. Because of the sheer number of animals that are not in homes, approximately 4 million dogs will enter shelters each year, and 1.7 million of them will be euthanized.

Did You Know? Although many think that breeders do not contribute to the overcrowding issues in the shelters, 25% of the dogs in the facilities are purebred.

Advocates say that only 10% of the animals in the shelters have been spayed or neutered. Overpopulation occurs simply due to owners letting their pets reproduce – and then they often surrender the entire litter.  Whether intentional or accidental, millions of these “excess” animals  – otherwise happy and healthy – are killed annually. National Puppy Day seeks to educate owners who already own dogs to be responsible and to encourage people looking for a new puppy to go to the shelter to quite literally save a life. National Puppy Day

On National Puppy Day, organizers ask that people consider adopting or fostering a puppy from a local Fort Worth shelter – but if that is not possible, to make a donation to help with their expenses.  On March 23rd, honor those who are dedicated to saving these adorable dogs – with flowers or plants from Gordon Boswell Flowers.
