Monday is National Rescue Dog Day!
It’s a day to learn about all the ways that a canine companion can improve your life.
We love our rescue dogs here at NewsChannel 9, and many of us own our own rescue.
Farah Jadran loves her two adopted pups, Bear and Bogey.
Nicole Sommavilla has her boy, Dakota.
Producer Allie Manheimer loves to show off her adopted hound, Mac.
According to the ASPCA, over three million dogs go into U.S. shelters each year and are waiting for forever homes.
If you have a rescue dog in your life, you can celebrate the day and connect with others using #NationalRescueDogDay on social media, and of course, show us by using #LocalSYR on Twitter.
Below is a photo gallery of some of the rescue dogs from members of our staff! Mobile users can click here to view the gallery.
