Every year, International Dog Day is observed on Aug. 26 and celebrates the love and value that dogs bring to our daily lives. The day was created to also recognize the number of dogs that are rescued yearly and to encourage adoption. To recognize our furry friends and family members this year, the Richmond News team is asking the Richmond community to send in a photo of their dog(s) (or an office dog), breed and a sentence of what they have been doing during COVID-19. Submissions can be emailed to email@example.com. Photos will be published as a photo gallery on our website as they come in.
