Silent vigil for homeless animals

Join ARFF for the International vigil for homeless animals.

Activists are needed to silently hold signs with enlarged photos of *actual dogs and cats who have been euthanized at a local shelter in ONE day. Help will also be needed distributing information to the  general public walking by, most UN-aware of the pet overpopulation crisis happening in their own back yards. If you can help, Please email us at [masked]

WHEN:Saturday August 24th starting at 8:00 pm

WHERE: Lake Eola Park along Rosalind near the band shell

WHY:Help us call attention to the pet overpopulation crisis in central Florida, where thousands of animals are euthanized each year. *Signs with statistics will be on hand

*Important* We ask that everyone wear black. Candles will be provided. Media expected.

ISAR launched International Homeless Animals' Day, an unprecedented national crusade, in 1992 to enlighten the public, elected officials, and the media to the tragedy of pet overpopulation and the dire need for spay/neuter resources to help curb the killing of millions of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens each year. Now, more than twenty-one years later, our observances have consistently grown in number. They bring together people all over the world to shed light on pet overpopulation and the spay/neuter solution. To date, International Homeless Animals’ Day has been celebrated in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, in over 50 countries and on 6 continents, with an enormous positive impact on the spay/neuter movement.

    Saturday animal advocates gathered to remember the tens of thousands of animals that die in central Florida shelters and millions nationwide. (An *estimated 16,008 animals at Orange & Seminole county animal services in 2012 according to shelter figures)The vigil received coverage on WDBO during rush hour Friday and throughout the day Saturday, letting us encourage the public to adopt and never shop. Advocates held signs that featured actual animals that have died in local shelters, distributed leaflets, as several cars drove by and honked in support. Thank you all for being there
