GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.- We honor moms, dads, grandmothers and grandfathers, so why not the family pooch, too! Monday, Aug. 26 is National Dog Day! It was created back in 2004, according to www.nationaldogday.com, by Colleen Paige, who happens to be a pet lifestyle expert and author.

While some dogs have a “fur-ever home”, others sit in limbo at the Humane Society of West Michigan. Supplies to care for these animals have recently reached very low levels including things like: food, chew toys, treats, bleach and much more.
