National Homeless Animals Day

August 17, 2002 has been declared by ISAR (International Society of Animal Rights) as National Homeless Animals Day. Candlelight Vigils are held to memorialize the dogs and cats that were euthanized because there were not enough homes. This is a Nationwide [Annual] Event.

This is also a WONDERFUL opportunity for a Fundraiser. PLEASE do not let this opportunity pass you by -- you can increase awareness of the need of spay/neuter, increase the awareness of the need to adopt from shelters, let people know the number of animals euthanized each year, and also raise some money!!

Our Local Humane Society did the candlelight vigil last year and raised over $2200.00. It is very possible for everyone on this list to do. We also gained new members and increased awareness.

PLEASE take the time to write ISAR and request their packet. They will include a proclamation for your mayor to sign, press releases, suggested poem and songs to sing at the vigil, and all around wonderful ideas and suggestions for you to put this event together.
