ISAR’s International Homeless Animals’ Day 2010

Dear Friends,
In 1992, ISAR introduced National Homeless Animals’ Day and Candlelight Vigils as an innovative educational vehicle with a purpose of informing society of an American tragedy that overwhelms animal shelters each year – pet overpopulation. Since the conception of National Homeless Animals’ Day, ISAR has reserved the third Saturday of August, commemorating the Day annually, to promote new campaigns, programs and ideas on the solution to the pet overpopulation epidemic: spay/neuter.
Now, because of the ever-growing, successful international participation in National Homeless Animals’ Day by foreign animal protection organizations, ISAR formally acknowledges this global participation by officially entitling our crusade as “International Homeless Animals’ Day.”
Organizations around the world come together on the third Saturday of August to raise awareness about the pet overpopulation epidemic. International Homeless Animals’ Day activities often include candlelight vigils, adopt-a-thons, microchip clinics, blessings of the animals, and heartfelt speeches given by council members, local veterinarians, humane officers and shelter personnel. Other activities include slideshows, rallies, dog walks, open houses, award ceremonies, live music, raffles, and games. To read about previous International Homeless Animals’ Day events, please visit our Newsletters page on our website (www.isaronline.org.)
By coming together on International Homeless Animals’ Day you can support ISAR in letting 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.
The date for this year’s International Homeless Animals’ Day is Saturday, August 21, 2010.
As any previous vigil coordinator can attest, early planning is the key to orchestrating a successful vigil.
Individuals and organizations wishing to take part in ISAR’s International Homeless Animals’ Day events can order a complimentary downloadable candlelight vigil packet by contacting ISAR by mail, phone, fax or email.
Our vigil packet includes guidelines for organizing a successful vigil event with tips on site selection, suggestions for speakers and vigil events, reaching target audiences, poems, songs, sample press releases and more!
In addition to your download of ISAR’s International Homeless Animals’ Day vigil packet, you will receive through the U.S. Postal Service, our International Homeless Animals’ Day posters to advertise your event, Proclamations to be signed by your governor and mayor declaring the day as International Homeless Animals’ Day, coloring sheets and more. Your download will also guarantee advertisement of your organization’s event to thousands of people on ISAR’s website, www.isaronline.org, as well as promotion on ISAR’s online communities including Facebook and Myspace.
