National Dog Day was Sunday, Aug. 26, and was created to accomplish two main goals for the national day: To honor dogs and to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse.

In honor of the day, residents of Cloverleaf Healthcare of Knightsville visited the Clay County Humane Society Friday to show some love to the dogs.

Cloverleaf Healthcare put together baskets full of dog treats, toys and shampoo to donate to the Humane Society, as well as a few cat items.

"It's something neat, and (the Humane Society) is always in need for that stuff," Community Liaison Director Kayla Chiles said. "It's an opportunity to take the residents out."

Cloverleaf invited the most dog-loving residents to participate in the event, which included six residents.

"It's a chance for them to get out of the facility," Chiles said. "They get to go out and visit with the animals."

Clay County Humane Society Board President Anita Hightshoe was grateful for the donations.

"I think it's great that they donated items and got a chance to socialize the animals," she said. "We appreciate everything the community does for us."

Currently, the shelter has 68 dogs and puppies up for adoption at a cost of $125, which includes spay or neuter and vaccinations.
