In its 10th anniversary of National Puppy Day, let’s not only celebrate but also be reminded of the thousands upon thousands of puppies that are born without a loving home and owner. National Puppy Day in San Pedro-2Pups born on the streets or inadequate homes don’t get to feel the warmth and safety offered at a loving home. Today is a day to help save orphaned puppies across the globe and educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills and strays.

Nevertheless, there are brave souls that save these lost puppies and help find them a forever home. Here in the island that task is carried out by the Saga Humane Society, a non-profit organization aimed to prevent cruelty and replace it with kindness to all animals.

And there are plenty more up for adoption at Saga!

Saga works tirelessly to ensure all puppies grow up in a proper home with a loving owner. But they need your help to do so. Adoption is one of the only ways to ensure that rescued puppies have a happy life. Everyone is encouraged to adopt and make a puppy’s life a better one, and if not please consider donating to the organization.

This one too!

Remember, National Puppy Day is a good day to drop by a shelter and adopt a dog.
Saga Humane Society is located in Sea Star Street, pay them a visit whenever you can!
