In 1992, ISAR introduced International Homeless Animals’ Day and Candlelight Vigils as an innovative educational vehicle with a purpose of informing society of a global tragedy that overwhelms animal shelters each year – pet overpopulation. Since the conception of International Homeless Animals’ Day, ISAR has reserved the third Saturday of August, commemorating the Day annually, to promote new campaigns, programs and ideas on the solution to the pet overpopulation epidemic: spay/neuter.
This year, on August 21st, ISAR marks it's 19th Annual International Homeless Animals' Day and Candlelight Vigils.
ISAR extends a welcome invitation to all previous vigil coordinators as well as any new coordinators to participate in International Homeless Animals' Day 2010.
ISAR's website includes information on how to order your complimentary International Homeless Animals' Day Vigil Packet, an event schedule of confirmed events for August 2010, ISAR's 9th Annual Virtual Vigil, information on ISAR's International Homeless Animals' Day Billboard Program, and more!
You can also view a video tribute to previous Homeless Animals' Day events on ISAR's website www.isaronline.org.
By coming together on International Homeless Animals’ Day you can support ISAR in letting the world know we will not tolerate the senseless killing that continues to take the lives of innocent dogs, cats, puppies and kittens simply because there are not enough good homes for them.
Together, we will continue to be a voice for the animals, and continue to demand an end to the suffering these animals face each day.
