What Are You Going To Do To Help?


The third Saturday of August is International Homeless Animals’ Day. On this day, groups around the world come together to raise awareness about the massive pet overpopulation problem today. With events in 9 countries and 24 U.S. states, thousands of people are gearing up to take a stand.
According to their 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, spay/neuter clinics, microchip clinics, slideshows, rallies, dog walks, open houses, award ceremonies, live music, raffles, and games.
There are many ways you can participate:
