What is national Rescue Dog Day and how are people celebrating the day? This day was founded in 2018 by a children’s book author Lisa Wiehebrink. This day was marked by Lisa inspired by the dog she herself rescued from the shelter.

The author herself, wanted other people to be aware of the shelter dog and adopt them so they can happily live their life in a forever home.
