International Homeless Animals Day #IHAD
FROM CAT CHAT WITH CAREN AND CODY: Portions of this post originally appeared in 2015, I have done some editing, but maintained the original link. That is why comments from last year are currently showing! This cause is near and dear to my heart because when I adopted my Angel Bobo, I had found him as a stray wandering the streets. I had searched two weeks for his original owner, after the two weeks, I kept him and he shared my life for 18 years.
On Saturday, August 20, 2016, ISAR will join forces with humane societies, animal protection organizations, animal-friendly businesses and concerned individuals to shed light on dog and cat overpopulation and the importance of spay/neuter.
Since 1992, ISAR has reserved the third Saturday of August as a platform for thousands of dedicated, humane-minded people to come together in solidarity to enlighten communities about a tragedy that affects all communities: cat and dog overpopulation and its simple solution: spay/neuter. IHAD is often marked with candlelight vigils, blessing of the animals ceremonies, spay/neuter clinics, adopt-a-thons, animal shelter open houses, microchip clinics, marches, speeches given by veterinarians, humane officers, and shelter personnel, and much more.
Please join us on International Homeless Animals’ Day! There is never a better time than the present to create positive change for unwanted animals.
