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]
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.
