Since 1992, the third Saturday of August has been recognized as International Homeless Animals Day. First established by ISAR, the International Society for Animal Rights, this day focuses on overpopulation and the mistreatment of animals across the planet.
Mahatma Gandhi said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
Charles Darwin said, “The love of all creatures is the most noble attribute of man.”
