National Black Dog Day is celebrated every year on October 1st. This special day was created to help raise awareness of black dogs, who are often overlooked in shelters and adopted less frequently than their lighter-colored counterparts.Black dogs of all breeds and mixes make great pets, but they often face discrimination when it comes to finding a forever home. National Black Dog Day is a chance to change that! On this day, we celebrate black dogs and promote them as the wonderful pets they are. We also encourage people to adopt black dogs from shelters, where they often spend longer waiting for a home than other dogs. So if you’re looking for a furry friend, consider adopting a black dog on National Black Dog Day – or any day!
