Where to Celebrate National Dog Day In Dallas

Today is the day to celebrate your four legged companion.

In 2004, animal rescue advocate Colleen Paige created National Dog Day to celebrate our furry four legged friends. Today, August 26, is that day. For us in Dallas, the holiday is the perfect moment to support our local animal nonprofits, such as Dallas Pets Alive, Dallas Street Dog Advocates, and Dallas Dog Rescue Reform Rehab. And to give your dog some well needed rest and relaxation. Here are some of your best bets.

Across from the hotel is Pacific Plaza Park and a number of dog-friendly restaurants and pet supply stores for their parents’ extended staycation.
