National Homeless Animals Day

August 19th is this year's date for National Homeless Animals Day. The International Society for Animal Rights Online (ISAR) founded this annual holiday in 1992 to increase public awareness of the millions of cats dogs and killed in shelters annually due to lack of homes, and to emphasize the importance of spaying and neutering pets.
Organizations around the world participate in many ways to acknowledge this holiday including: mobile adoptions, animal shelter open houses, festivals, spay/neuter or vaccination clinics, pet walks, and candlelight vigils. We encourage you to check your community calender to see how your area recognizes this event, or even to think up your own ways to participate by supporting your local humane organizations.
