The history of animal rights and shelters have long been intertwined. In the 1870s, animal welfare advocates noted that children and animals were equally vulnerable and needed protection. So, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) enacted anti-cruelty laws.

In the 20th century, there were increases in protection for domestic animals, such as dogs and cats, while animals sent to slaughterhouses or working animals still received little protection.

But animal rights activists continue to fight for more legal and physical protections for animals.

In 1992, the International Association for Animal Rights declared International Homeless Animal Day the third Saturday of August every year.

Today, in most countries, to control the increase in the population of urban animals and reduce the suffering of homeless animals, the sterilization program of dogs and cats is carried out. In this program, dogs and cats are trapped, neutered, and released (TNR).

Vafa Animal Shelter also launched a sterilization campaign in October last year and has sterilized hundreds of dogs and cats so far.

Your financial contribution to this campaign means we can all be a voice for homeless animals and help reduce their suffering by controlling overpopulation.
