International Homeless Animals’ Day

Feral Cat Collage

The International Society for Animal Rights, according to their website, “conceived and began International Homeless Animals’ Day (IHAD) in 1992… Animal protection organizations and concerned individuals from around the world come together on the third Saturday of August each year to raise awareness about the pet overpopulation epidemic.”

I have volunteered at three animal shelters and fed several feral cats at my last place of employment. I see so many good people who work hard to get animals fixed and to take care of the ones living, whether in a shelter or a colony. These people are helping to keep the problem from getting worse, but to really help make sure that all domestic animals are taken care of, many more like-minded people are needed to either volunteer or contribute financially.

    I know you feel good being part of the “answer” instead of part of the “problem” with homeless animals………..volunteering is such a blessing for those that need help keeping fed, safe, and finding homes. Bless you for all you have done and DO!

    I’ve always wanted to volunteer in a shelter, but I’ve never been able to make myself do it because I just know I’ll be broken-hearted every single day. So, I opt to be a strict vegan and take care of my own three dog-angels. 🙂
