National Rescue Dog Day 2024

National Rescue Dog Day History:

National Rescue Dog Day was founded by “Tails That Teach”. They selected the date 20th May as the celebratory occasion. The plan was simple- to honor the inclusion of rescue dogs in the human family as well as increase awareness of adopting dogs by providing an idea about the number of dogs residing in the shelter. They would fill their homes forever with love and devotion and unconditional joy with every pat on the head if given a chance to do so.

How Rescue Dogs are Selected and Trained?

Rescue dogs are chosen due to their ability to help with a particular impairment and can perform on tasks such as collecting objects, and bracing which means the task of helping someone to stand up and notifying of unusual sounds. Their size or breed can be versatile and that is the reason many organizations prefer to use rescue dogs. Due to the loving and compassionate nature of service dogs, they can provide great service and therapy to those in need of it. If given the proper training it will end up reducing the overpopulation in shelters.

In a shelter, animals can remain frequently nervous and do not reveal they are true personalities until they are separated from the other animals and have messy surroundings. When separated, the dogs will be subjected to obedience tests to ensure they will be a good match as a service dog.
