Help Make National Mutt Day Rosie!

National Mutt Day (a.k.a. National Mixed Breed Dog Day) – Learn more HERE - is celebrated on both July 31st and December 2nd.  Colleen Paige lovingly created National Mutt Day back in 2005.  A well known Celebrity Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Welfare Advocate, Colleen wanted to help bring attention to the fact that approximately 80% of dogs in shelters are mixed breeds or “mutts”.  The two days dedicated to National Mutt Day help bring to light the very real, and very sad struggle mutts go through on a daily basis, simply because they are not as highly prized as pure breeds.  But the interesting thing is, mutts are actually healthier overall, generally better behaved and enjoy longer lifespans.  Because often mutts are not deemed as “pretty”, millions of them end up in shelters where they wait in fear, desperately hoping that one day they will find a forever home and be well-loved.
