Almost 50% of U.S. households have dogs, which equates to about 80 million happy canines living with families. Still, on National Puppy Day, animal advocates look to highlight the issues facing dogs and puppies - namely irresponsible breeding, breeding for profit, overcrowded shelters, and far too many euthanizations. With only an estimated 10% of dogs labeled "behavior problems", these puppies face uncertain fates through no fault of their own. This day is set aside to celebrate the love that puppies bring to our lives while bringing awareness and educating the public.
At Mission Viejo Florist, we recognize the unsung heroes, often volunteers, working to save the lives of these animals every day. Read More about Celebration Highlights Need for Puppy Adoption »
