National Mutt Day

national mutts day

If you’re anything like me, fur babies hold a very special place in my heart. Did you know that there’s a distinct holiday to celebrate our pups? July 31 is National Mutt Day — it’s a day to spoil our mixed breeds and to raise awareness for those who need a fur-ever home. Back in the 1800s, the word “mutt” was considered to be a demeaning term that means “stupid person.” Let’s just call them mixed breeds, because dogs are extremely smart animals.

Ways to Spoil Your Mixed Breed on National Mutt Day

  • Take your dog to get a pup cup from Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks or Dairy Queen

  • Get your dogs active by going on a walk at Saluda Shoals, Cayce Riverwalk or in your neighborhood.

  • Let your dog pick out a new toy from a local pet shop or get crafty and make DIY doggie toys and treats.

How to Honor National Mutt Day

  • Adopt a dog at your local shelter.

  • Donate money, toys or food to an animal shelter.

  • Spend some time volunteering at your local animal shelter.
