International Homeless Animals’ Day - 21 August. (The third Saturday in August)

International Homeless Animals’ Day on the third Saturday in August focuses on the pet overpopulation problem and how to help solve it.

International Homeless Animals’ Day is on August 21st in 2021. The official slogan for the event is “Become part of the solution,” and there are plenty of ways to do so!

Most of these homeless animals are dogs and cats. On a global scale, 600 million dogs seek homes or wander the streets.

International Homeless Animals’ Day has an enormous reach. Over 50 countries and 6 continents observe the day. In the United States, all 50 states and the District of Columbia hold events in honor of the observance.

The International Society for Animal Rights (ISAR) plans many events each year for this special day.

In 1959, the ISAR was founded. It may be the first-ever animal rights organization in the world. Those who organized the ISAR aimed to hold humans accountable for the needless suffering and exploitation of animals. Since then, the ISAR has been involved in a number of animal rights issues. The ISAR worked to increase penalties for those who abuse animals. Another area of focus includes stopping pet shops from selling animals and ending online sales of cats and dogs.

In 1992, the ISAR observed the first International Homeless Animals’ Day to bring awareness to the increasing numbers of homeless animals. Very simply, ISAR believes spaying and neutering solve the pet overpopulation problem.
