National Dog Week will be held September 24 - 30 this year. It is a celebration of dogs, what they mean to people and the ongoing task of improving life for all dogs. (Pictured here... The Giving Tree mascot... 'Finn')
Since 1928, Americans have been celebrating man's best friend. This is a great opportunity to get your dog-loving children involved in helping animal shelters and rescue organizations. Maybe do a collection of old towels or food. How about creating braided dog toys with a baggie of treats?

It's a great way to meet youth from other schools and share ideas.
