About National Dog Day

National Dog Day celebrates all breeds, pure and mixed and serves to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, either from public shelters, rescues and pure breed rescues. National Dog Day honors family dogs and dogs that work selflessly to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day - for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage.

About National Dog Day

National Dog Day celebrates all breeds, pure and mixed and serves to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, either from public shelters, rescues and pure breed rescues. National Dog Day honors family dogs and dogs that work selflessly to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day - for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage.

Grab your furry buddy (or buddies—of all breeds), your friends/family, a mug, maybe even ice skates weather permitting and a sled and join us for an afternoon of friends gathering for friendship and community goodness. 

Oh goodness ❤️🐕🐩🐾❤️

Keep warm by the bonfire with a glass or 3 of hot apple cider and make 12 S’mores. We’re hoping to include story telling from the historical society, but please bring all of yours. In between doggy walks and runs take your sled for a plunge on the hills— and Yes, there will be a “bunny slope” designated for the little ones. 


As evening approaches, step in for live, local music and games for the family. 

Musicians will be announced

We will pass a basket around with 100% of any donations going to the Fitchburg Dog Park and Pat Brody Shelter for Cats! 🐶😻🎉😲
