International Homeless Animals Day 2019 – August 17

Today, I have found out that every third Saturday of August, people who are not indifferent to the fate of their smaller brothers celebrate World Homeless Animals Day. The holiday was established in 1992 at the suggestion of the International Society for Animal Rights and was adopted in many countries in the coming years.Sad statistics claim that 75% of homeless animals are driven out into the street by brutal owners. Without human help, inappropriate animals are doomed to starvation and death. The activists of the animal protection movement are asking not to pass by the unfortunate cats and dogs left homeless. This international holiday is an effective tool that helps to draw people’s attention to the problems of homeless animals.

  1. I didn’t know about this holiday, and it makes sense this month was chosen as many people go on vacation and suddenly find their pets to be a nuisance. I’m shocked at how inhumane some ‘humans’ are. There are many alternatives, yet they leave their pets on the street. Strict laws for this matter are needed. Then in some countries spaying and neutering is either illegal, or too expensive, so the feral population gets out of control. ?
