Tuesday, April 23rd is National Lost Dogs Awareness Day.
On April 23, 2014, Lost Dogs of America created and launched the first National Lost Dog Awareness Day (NLDAD), a canine-centric holiday aimed to bring attention to all dogs that are lost each year, while also celebrating the thousands of lost dogs successfully reunited with their families.
Lost Dogs of America is an all-volunteer organization with the exclusive purpose of providing a free service to help reunite families with their lost dogs.
The tenacious efforts of the combined states’ volunteers efforts, along with over 459,282 fans have helped reunite over 99,521 dogs with their families since 2011. Getting lost dogs back home reduces stress on owners’, staff at shelters/animal control facilities, other dogs in the facilities, and ultimately saves taxpayers’ money. It also opens up kennel space for truly homeless dogs.
