KAR and International Homeless Animals’ Day


KAR Supports International Homeless Animals’ Day

Saturday August 18th

Kyrenia Animal Rescue is coming together with organizations around the world on Saturday 18th August to raise awareness about pet overpopulation.

The KAR Education Team will be holding an awareness event outside the Girne Municipality offices between 5pm and 8pm to promote the importance of neutering/spaying dogs and cats and the overwhelming need to home some of the 300 dogs and puppies that are presently being cared for at the charity’s Besparmak Rescue Centre. Puppies from the Centre will be at the event along with photos and details of dogs in need of homes or sponsorship. Local Vets are being invited to attend.

In 1992, the International Society for Animal Rights (ISAR) introduced International Homeless Animals’ Day as an innovative educational vehicle with a purpose of informing society of the global tragedy that overwhelms animal shelters each year – pet overpopulation. Since the conception of International 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. In 2012, for the 21st consecutive year, ISAR is pleased to have assisted animal rights/welfare organizations, as well as concerned individuals, in more than 30 U.S. states and 12 foreign countries in making their International Homeless Animals’ Day events a success.

KAR is asking all animal lovers in TRNC to support them on this day by attending their event, sponsoring or homing one of the dogs or cats in their care, or organizing a fundraising event to support their work. By coming together on International Homeless Animals’ Day you can support KAR 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.

Together, we will continue to be a voice for the animals, and continue to demand an end to the suffering these animals face each day.
