There are many special days of the year devoted to animals of all shapes and sizes. Some celebrate specific breeds or species and others help raise awareness about an important cause or issue.

April 14 is National Dolphin Day, an annual event that not only celebrates these amazing creatures, but also shines the spotlight on the plight of the dolphin.
