International Homeless Animals' Day
Overpopulation is a worldwide problem that not only affects human residency on planet Earth, but companion animals as well. Our actions can have great impact on both serious problems. On Saturday, August 16, friends of homeless animals will gather throughout the world to acknowledge "a global tragedy" of dog and cat overpopulation and resulting euthanasia of thousands of innocent victims. Purrfect Cat Rescue has joined this movement and will serve as host of an afternoon celebration of companion animals culminating with an evening candlelight vigil for those lost to overpopulation.
Rescue organizations will be present with dogs and cats for adoption, low cost microchipping and vaccinations as well as vendors of products that can help companion animal live a long and healthy life. Free spay and neuter services by appointment will address overpopulation in a practical way. Join the candlelight vigil at 7 p.m. as participants join others around the world to "shed light on a global tragedy - dog and cat overpopulation.
