We saved the biggest and best for last. Considered the finest dog house in the world, this generously appointed canine mansion is 1/4 the size of its parent house: the 3-bedroom $2 million ‘Hedron House’. Our favorite feature: retina scans on the doors to keep out strays.

July is Wild About Wildlife Month

July is a busy month for organizations dedicated to helping and protecting animals. To participate, we’ve put together a selection of events. Some are a little more serious than others, but it’s our hope that you’ll find something that might inspire!

July 1st: Animal Sanctuary Day

animal-sanctuary
Many different types of animal sanctuaries have events on this day, from spreading awareness to their cause to adoption marathons. Using your favorite search tool, try looking for “my local animal sanctuary”. Maybe there’s a near-by event that you’d like to check out!

July 10th: Don’t Step on a Bee Day

bee-day
While this event might seem whimsical at first glance, it’s actually pretty serious. July brings warm weather, and that means more bare feet. Bee-ing (sorry) aware for bees while skipping barefoot through those beautiful parks and meadows can keep your day carefree and fun.

July 12th: Cow Appreciation Day

cow-day
Mostly associated with Chik-fil-A for their promotion of a free meal if you come dressed as a cow, Cow Appreciation Day is actually about spreading awareness of how important the bovine is.

July 14th: Shark Awareness Day

shark-day
Educating folks and reversing negative preconceived notions (largely media-driven) about sharks is the purpose for this event.

July 15th: I Love Horses Day

horse-day
Trying to preserve the remaining wild horse and burro habitats is the goal for the organizations running this American holiday.

July 15th: Pet Fire Safety Day

July 16th: World Snake Day

snake-day
A global event, World Snake Day has similar goals as Shark Awareness Day. Both creatures are subject to unnecessary hostility due to ignorance, as well as habitats that are being heavily impacted by human activities.

July 29th: International Tiger Day

tiger-day
One of the most admired animals, tigers are also some of the most vulnerable to extinction. This world-wide event wants to make everyone aware of how delicate the tiger’s existence is.

July 31st: Mutt’s Day

mutt-day
The goal for Mutt’s Day is to raise awareness of the plight of mixed breed dogs in shelters around the nation, and to educate the public about the numbers of mixed breed dogs that are looking for new homes.
