June 18 is National Dog Dad Day

Father’s Day is our annual celebration of everything Dad, but you don’t need kids to be an awesome father!

Now there’s a special day devoted to all the guys raising dogs and puppies, which can require just as much care as human children. National Dog Dad Day was founded to celebrate all the guys who buy kibble and walk the dogs (often while carrying poop) in rain, snow, or shine.

This year, Dog Dad Day will be observed on June 18, 2022, just one day before Father’s Day—and the timing isn’t coincidental. After all, Dog Dads have much in common with human fathers, starting with the fact they love their fur babies just like human children.

Like human dads, Dog Dads also provide their pups with food and shelter. They prioritize treats, playtime, and toys. Like any good parent, they have the (animal) doctor on speed-dial.

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways you can celebrate Dog Dad’s Day this year–because these hardworking pup pops deserve a day of recognition.

Some ideas include presenting Dog Dads with a thank-you card or a gift on behalf of their grateful fur babies. You could also buy a meaningful gift from the Animal Rescue Site Store, where every purchase provides free bowls of food for shelter animals.

Some popular gifts include our Awesome Dog Dad T-Shirt, which is available in multiple colors and sizes to celebrate all kinds of Dog Dads.

Our Dog Dad Facts T-Shirt is another meaningful gift, especially if your dog considers your partner to be the “Best Walker, Belly Scratcher, and Treat-giver.” Find additional styles at The Animal Rescue Site Store.

Regardless, we’re just thrilled Dog Dads finally get their own day of celebration, because they deserve it. How are you celebrating Dog Dad’s Day this year?
