      NATIONAL HOMELESS ANIMALS’ DAY: AUGUST 19, 2006

      Order your vigil packet now!

      Please Note: National Homeless Animals' Day is always on the third Saturday of August each year.
       
      ISAR began National homeless Animals’ Day and Candlelight Vigils to publicize dog and cat overpopulation in its overwhelming magnitude, to increase public awareness of the millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually for lack of homes and to emphasize the importance of spaying and neutering companion animals. From modest beginnings in 1992, National Homeless Animals’ Day and Candlelight Vigils, commemorated on the third Saturday of August each year, have grown enormously in both number and content. Animal Rights/Welfare organizations, as well as individuals from around the world have taken part in the event to increase public awareness of this issue.
       
      The Candlelight Vigils, perhaps more than any other event, dramatize the significance of the overpopulation problem, and why the killing must stop. Dedicated shelter and animal control personnel, who must kill the animals at the cost of their own grief, plan beautiful, moving vigils. Many read the names of the animals and the dates they were killed from identification collars used in shelters. Music, prayers, readings and speeches are also often part of the vigils.
       
      As a part of National Homeless Animals’ Day, many governors and mayors sign proclamations written by ISAR. These declarations urge people to act responsibly by having their companion animals spayed or neutered to help curb pet overpopulation, ultimately putting an end to the killing of healthy but homeless animals.
       
      Individuals or organizations wishing to take part in National Homeless Animals’ Day and Candlelight Vigils can contact ISAR for a free vigil packet which contains materials on how activists can organize their own vigils, as well as helpful hints for holding a successful vigil.
