On this day we honor and commemorate the service and sacrifices of American military and working dogs throughout history.
One of the most famous hero dogs is Sgt. Stubby, whose bravery during the First World War earned him a medal of honor.
Sgt. Stubby is featured in one of our winning stories from our 2020 Ambassadors of Compassion story-writing contest.
We will soon be releasing a book containing these stories, and we’re embarking on a new contest. Keep posted for details.
