How will you celebrate National Mutt Day?

The TurfMutt Foundation is not only a big fan of backyards and public green spaces, it is also a big fan of rescue dogs. In fact, the TurfMutt spokesdog, Mutt Mulligan, is a rescue pup who was adopted at the annual Lucky’s Mutt Madness pet adoption event. (Isn’t that the cutest pic of Mo-Mo on her adoption day?)

This is why National Mutt Day – celebrated every July 31st and December 2nd – makes us as happy as a rescue dog getting a belly rub.

How are you celebrating National Mutt Day with your pooch this weekend? Here are a few suggestions from the TurfMutt Foundation:

  • Spruce up your yard with your pet in mind. Nobody loves your backyard as much as your dog. Learn how to create a doggie dream yard with these tips from TurfMutt.
  • Spend time together in green space. Spending time with you is the most important thing to your pup. Play fetch in your yard. Host a backyard doggie playdate with neighborhood fur friends. Take a walk in a favorite park. Try a new trail. There are so many things to see and sniff in the great outdoors – starting in your own backyard.
  • Help a pet in need. If your family is ready to add to its pack, visit the local shelter to find your new pup. You can also volunteer with a local rescue group or donate money to your favorite pet-centric organization.
