While perusing the Freekibble website, which Diesel and I do every morning, I came upon this information about International Homeless Animals' Day. Pet overpopulation is at epidemic proportions, as people abandon animals that they can not feed or care for. Please take a moment to think about the responsibility we have towards our four legged friends and read about International Homeless Animals' Day:
The third Saturday of August is International Homeless Animals’ Day. On this day, groups around the world will come together to raise awareness about pet overpopulation. With events in 9 countries and 24 U.S. states, thousands of people are gearing up to take a stand.
According to the official website, they aim to “let 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.”
On International Homeless Animals’ Day, individuals and organizations around the world organize awareness-raising activities like candlelight vigils, adopt-a-thons, microchip clinics, slideshows, rallies, dog walks, open houses, award ceremonies, live music, raffles, and games.
If this is an important cause to you, there are many ways you can participate:
- Attend an event: check the Event Schedule to find a meeting near you.
- Participate in the Virtual Vigil: If you can’t attend an event or if there’s no event in your area, then you can light a candle online in honor of homeless animals.
- Sign petitions: it’s a great way to let the government and other officials know that pet overpopulation is a serious problem. Some Care2 petitions:
