Since 1992, the International Society for Animal Rights (ISAR) has been celebrating International Homeless Animals’ Day with candlelight vigils around the world. The thought behind these vigils is to “bring people all over the world together to shed light on pet overpopulation and the spay/neuter solution.”

This year, International Homeless Animals’ Day will fall on Saturday, August 16.

Cat Welfare will be celebrating International Homeless Animals’ Day with a candlelight vigil on Saturday from 6:30-7:30 pm. The vigil will take place at their shelter, 741 Wetmore Road, Columbus, OH 43214.

Besides the vigil to focus on the plight of homeless animals, there will also be guest speakers. Kerry Manion, chief humane agent at Capital Area Humane Society will speak, as will Paula and Jay Mathew, feral cat experts.
