Justice for Oreo 2-13-10
Candlelight Vigil at 4pm & Speak Out for Shelter Animals at 7pm
On Saturday, February 13, 2010, New York activists will hold a candlelight vigil at the ASPCA to commemorate the 90th day since Oreo was killed by her "rescuers". Join us as we raise a candle and a fist to remember and honor Oreo. Following the candlelight vigil, we will reconvene at Hunter College where we will hold a panel discussion, including video presentations, on what we can do to stop the killing of animals at New York's shelters.
Featured will be information about the work of Nathan Winograd of No Kill Solutions, the model No Kill Sanctuary Best Friends in Kaneb, Utah and New York's own Pets Alive Sanctuary. It was Pets Alive that stepped forward and offered to give sanctuary to Oreo. They offered Oreo a home, a good life and the opportunity to work with compassionate experienced individuals who would help her to become a happy healthy dog again. Of course, you all know by now, that the ASPCA would not allow that happy ending to happen for Oreo. Instead they killed her.
Please join us at: Candlelight Vigil for Oreo at the ASPCA When: Saturday, February 13, 2010 @ 4:00 PM Where: 424 E. 92nd (off 1st Ave.)
Following the Oreo Candlelight Vigil Join Win Animal Rights & Hunter Animal Rights Team for:
