April 23rd is National Lost Dog Awareness Day, which was created by Lost Dogs of America. This organization is a non-profit, all-volunteer outfit with one exclusive mission; to help reunite lost dogs with their families. National Lost Dog Awareness Day has been an annual event since 2014 and is meant to bring attention to all the dogs that are lost each year and to celebrate the thousands of them that are reunited with their families. In honor of this day, our REALTORS® would like to acknowledge five pet rescues near Mansfield whose goal is to find homes for stray dogs and help reunite lost dogs with their owners.
