Submit Your Photos for National Puppy Day!

Let face it, nothing puts a smile on your face like looking at a cute puppy. Show off photos of your adorable puppy!

It's your puppy's day to shine! What makes today so special? It's National Puppy Day.

According to the website, since its start in 2006 National Puppy Day celebrates the magic and unconditional love puppies give us, but "more importantly, it's a day to help save orphaned puppies across the globe and educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills, as well as further our mission for a nation of puppy-free pet stores."

Puppy mills are breeding facilities that produce puppies without concern for their physical, social or emotional needs, according to the Wisconsin Humane Society. Usually the puppies are sold to the public through the Internet, ads or pet shops. The site says, "Dogs from puppy mills are inbred or overbred, and receive minimal veterinary care, poor quality food and water, and very little socialization."

In honor of National Puppy Day submit your photos to our gallery telling us your puppy's name and their hometown.

Jen - your story is so cute! What a cute pup, it must be fun to see him do all those things!! Although sad for your Nellie to have been through all of that!

Nellie has adapted quite well given her past. She comes out of her shell more and more each day. She truly has been a blessing, and you can tell she is thoroughly enjoying her new found freedom! :-)
