U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature For August 26
WASHINGTON, Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
MONDAY, AUGUST 26: NATIONAL DOG DAY
Profile America — Monday, August 26th. It is said that "every dog has its day," and according to an animal welfare organization in Oregon, today is it. Now in its 10th observance, every August 26 is National Dog Day. The occasion has two goals. One is to honor dogs, which serve humanity as companions, watchdogs, herders, and Seeing Eye dogs. They also aid in search and rescue, and in sniffing out explosives and drugs. The second goal is to rescue 10,000 dogs a year from neglect and abuse. In the U.S., there are around 70,000 pet care businesses, offering such things as pet toys and supplies, and grooming services. Outside of veterinary services, we spend some $3.6 billion a year on our animals.
