Sunday is National Rescue Dog Day!

It's a day devoted to recognizing the benefits of adopting a dog in need.

According to the ASPCA, there are about 3.3 million dogs entering shelters every year.

We celebrated the day by sharing cute pup pictures on Good Morning Chattanooga Weekend.

Animal shelters in Hamilton County include the Hamilton County Humane Educational Society and McKamey Animal Center.
