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.”

Signed in early spring dear Ed, bless you for spreading the news, I still think, that the closures of puppy mills, would add the most to stop most of this horrible problem, the moral issues of induviduals is another thing, wish they were all like you!
