Sorry for the small delay in getting this to our Rescue Partners! As you may have read, I'm packing up and moving to Accra, Ghana. And anyone who has ever moved internationally can tell you : this is definitely a unique experience.
This is September upcoming global hashtags and trends that I hope will inspire some of our rescue partners in their content creation this month. If you see a day and a global hashtag that you want to use, go ahead! Let us contribute our likes, retweets, and shares to you - just tag us using @dogsbondgame on any of your posts!

MONTH & WEEKS OF SEPTEMBER GLOBAL HASHTAGS
#NationalDogMonth: Has a pretty good ring to it!
National Service Dog Month: We can also appreciate these loving caretakers. No official hashtag so go for it!
National Pet Insurance Month: Pet ownership can sometimes be expensive. Good insurance can help defray unexpected costs and responsibilities. No official hashtag so go for it!
Sept 12: Adopt-a-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week - I definitely don't name these because I think it's a pretty tough misnomer here. All pets are adoptable they just have to find their human that has a temperament and patience to manage.
Sept 18: National Deaf Dog Awareness Week & National Dog Week - Pretty great!
SEPTEMBER DAY CELEBRATIONS & GLOBAL HASHTAGS
Sept 7: #GratefulPatientDay - We all know that sometimes our furry family members have to go in for procedures. Hopefully yours is a kind and loving one! Celebrate, and give an update on one of the pups your organization helped.
Sept 9: #NationalTeddyBearDay - Does your animal have a favorite stuffed or plush toy? Or maybe your pets are destroyers of these toys. Whatever it is, make sure to share a photo and maybe a speed record.
Sept 12: #NationalPetMemorialDay - Remembering our furry friends and family members who have crossed the rainbow bridge one more time. Some of these animals, like Alex's dog Kona, were inspirations for great organizations like the rescues we partner with. Tell these stories.
Sept 18: #PuppyMillAwarenessDay and #ResponsibleDogOwnershipDay - how appropriate that these two messages are on the same day. Tell the world. Share some facts, knowledge, and of course your organization's mission statement.
Sept 21: #InternationalHomelessAnimalsDay - We're based out of the USA but we're definitely a globally minded organization. We're going to be working to expand the number of rescues we're able to help worldwide.
Sept 23: National Dogs in Politics Day - We can all agree that it's pretty great to see world leaders with dogs. Take a look at FDOTUS; the First Dog of the United States; on their social media!
That's what we've found for this upcoming month of September!
I'd love to get your thoughts, feedback, and of course ideas on how I might be able to build this into a greater resource for rescues! Have a great September!
