On August 19 New Yorkers stood together in peace to send a powerful message:
Save our dogs!
Across New York, and around the world, dog lovers lit candles in rememberance of the innocent dogs everywhere that have died due to discrimination and hate.
More than 300 vigils worldwide, including 12 in New York, were hosted by caring dog owners. Some were private vigils in homes, others were in the center of town. It didn't matter. The message was clear: Discrimination is killing our dogs. Stop the killing.
Information on how you can participate in next year's event is available at the Light a Candle, Save a Life website.
If you are in New York: Please visit Dog Friendly Plattsburgh and be sure to download and circulate our petition opposing the Plattsburgh
Resolution. The City of Plattsburgh passed a resolution to permit breed specific legislation in New York earlier this year. Don't let the discrimination return to New York.
