Make ‘National Animal Rescue Day’ a Reality!

Written by PETA | May 3, 2012

Check this out: U.S. Representative Robert E. Andrews of New Jersey has introduced a bill in Congress (H.R. 220) that would designate the first Saturday in October as “National Animal Rescue Day” to encourage adoption, spaying and neutering, and creating a “humane environment” for companion animals.

This is such a wonderful idea and how appropriate that a member of Congress from the Garden State would be instrumental in trying to get us a bit closer to a Garden of Eden for animals in need!

How to Help Make This Bill a Law

Please do your part to make National Animal Rescue Day a reality—encourage your federal representative to support H.R. 220 today, and urge your friends and family to push their members of Congress to do the same!

    “My goal in life is to be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.” What a fantastic idea!!!! My favorite breed of dog is a rescue! Our family has two dogs (both of which are rescues). Making a day a national holiday would not only educate people on how many animals are in need but I bet it would drastically change the number of animals that find there “forever home”! What a beautiful idea!

    I think if it were more affordable for people to spay/neuter animal’s, more people would do it. Maybe on this particular day, clinic’s could offer free or discounted cost’s to do this.
