ISAR's 22nd Annual International Homeless Animals' Day®
Saturday, August 17, 2013
Organizations around the world come together on the third Saturday of August to raise awareness about the pet overpopulation epidemic and its spay/neuter solution. To find out how you can get involved with this year's International Homeless Animals' Day events, please click HERE!
ISAR's prewritten letters-to-the-editor, like ISAR's public service announcements, prove to be an effective means of educating others about the pet overpopulation crisis without cost. ISAR has form letters available (free of charge) on subjects ranging from dog and cat overpopulation, puppy mills, tethered/outside dogs, and the importance of a United Nations Spay/Neuter Stamp.
We ask our supporters to please copy ISAR with your letter after it has been published by your local newspaper for our records.

Much of the Holzer-Eichelman discussion centers around the legal problem of "standing to sue"--that is, who is entitled to bring a case against humans on behalf of animals.
