Responsible Dog Ownership Day To Shine Blue With Helmsley Building This September


NEW YORK, Sept. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Kennel Club (AKC®), the world's largest purebred dog registry and leading advocate for dogs is proud to announce that the Helmsley Building, located at 230 Park, will shine blue this Saturday, September 18, 2021 in honor of Responsible Dog Ownership Day.

"The American Kennel Club is extremely grateful to RXR Realty for approving our request to light the Helmsley Building in honor of Responsible Dog Ownership Day," said Dennis B. Sprung, President & CEO of the AKC. "It is a natural fit to be aligned with RXR, a best-in-class socially responsible company. We are proud to be with RXR, as both corporations share a dedication of giving back to the community as well as responsible ownership of dogs."

Responsible Dog Ownership Day was created by the American Kennel Club in 2003 to promote the responsibilities that come along with owning a dog. The observance highlights the human-canine bond and aims to educate first-time dog owners about responsible dog ownership and help current owners enhance their relationships with their pets.

"The Helmsley Building shining blue in recognition of Responsible Dog Ownership Day will help inform current and future dog owners about the commitment we have to our pets," said Gina DiNardo, Executive Secretary of the AKC. "It is our mission to advocate for dogs as family companions, advance canine health and well-being, work to protect the rights of all dog owners and promote responsible dog ownership and lighting this renowned building blue is testament to our dedication to these goals."

American Kennel Club's Responsible Dog Ownership Day initiative encourages AKC-affiliated clubs and other pet-related organizations to host events in their communities to participate in the celebration each September. Activities typically include Canine Good Citizen tests, microchip clinics, educational booths, health screenings, dog parades, demos, training classes and more.
