National Dog Day celebrates all dogs, mixed breed and pure. The mission is to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day...for personal protection, for law enforcement, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage, now they're detecting cancer and seizures.

The Tom Family Herd of dogs consist of nothing but rescue dogs, mostly senior pooches. All loved equally. We recently said goodbye to our Thunder Boy in March of 2018. Artie Boy crossed in December of 2018 and we just lost our Annie Girl August 1, 2019. We still have Luke Boy, Chloe Girl and Sprinkles. Luke and Chloe are both over 14, Sprinkles is 9. Life with dogs is so wonderful and full of love. Please consider a dog rescue and you'll be so happy you did. HAPPY NATIONAL DOG DAY to all dogs, but especially to our Tom Herd. More rescues to come.
