The Ardmore Animal Care Animal Shelter is hosting a candlelight vigil for homeless animals Aug. 16, which is International Homeless Animal Day.
About 28,000 unwanted and homeless animals were accepted at the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter during the last fiscal year. More than 7,000 were adopted. But about 19,000 were euthanized.
For folk who can’t make it down to Ardmore next Saturday, honor International Homeless Animal Day in your own way. (You could even adopt Megan Lynn, shown here, from the Ardmore shelter.)
I plan to honor the holiday by petting the four-legged members of my family, both of whom were rescued from homelessness by the kindness of strangers.
