Nothing will brighten up your day faster than adorable puppy pictures!

Yesterday, March 23rd, we celebrated National Puppy Day on the air and on social media. We asked listeners to send in their cutest pup pictures, and they DEFINITELY delivered! With over 300 photos to look through, it was very difficult to choose my favorites, but I did have a great time doing it! Here are some of the most adorable puppies (of ALL ages) here in Eastern Iowa:

Adorable Iowa Pups on 'National Puppy Day' 2022

We asked you to send in your cute pup pics for National Puppy Day, and you delivered! Here are some of our favorites!

I might be a little bias, but I think my Tater Tot is one of the cutest pups here in Eastern Iowa, too! The second I saw his picture on the Last Hope Animal Rescue website back in March of 2020, I knew he belonged with me. I don't know if it was his big, brown puppy dog eyes, his cute little ears, or his snaggletoof, but I was obsessed with him from day one! How could I say no to this sweet, dumb face?!


There are lots of pups available for adoption here in Eastern Iowa. We work closely with not only Last Hope Animal Rescue, but also Dogs Forever in Cedar Rapids and Safe Haven of Iowa County in Amana for our weekly 'Furry Friday' segments. Each rescue always has a variety of dogs of all breeds, sizes, colors, and ages that are looking for their "furever" homes! Please consider adopting a new best friend from one of these amazing organizations. I know my life just wouldn't be the same without mine!
