The 2nd Annual My Dog Votes Worldwide Candlelight Vigil Against Breed Bans

SUNDAY, AUGUST 20th, 8 PM - SAVE THE DATE!

If you've thought of doing something about breed bans - the time is now. If you thought breed bans are senseless, cruel and just plain wrong, the time is now. If you are dog owner, a dog lover or love someone with dogs, the time is now.

Breed bans are sweeping North America and the world, and thousands of innocent dogs are being put to death at the hands of ignorant politicians, even taken from the arms of loving owners.

Please join thousands of dog owners worldwide on Sunday, August 20th, 2006 at 8 PM EST, to remember the victims of breed bans in the 2nd Annual My Dog Votes Worldwide Candlelight Vigil Against Breed Bans.

You can help put a stop to this senseless cruelty.

Standing In Solidarity

My Dog Votesâ„¢ is asking dog owners everywhere to help by holding local candlelight vigils and stand up in solidarity with dog owners in affected communities.

Light a candle on Sunday, August 20th to shed light on breed discrimination and help save the thousands of innocent dogs who will be put to death because of breed bans.

Light a candle on Sunday, August 20th and stand in solidarity with dog owners in Denver, where the city has confiscated and killed close to 1000 innocent dogs in the last year for being the "wrong breed".

How Many More - How Many Will Suffer?
The list of dog breeds being deemed dangerous or banned is growing by the day:

Akitas
American Pit Bull Terriers
American Staffordshire Terriers
Bull Terriers
Cane Corsos
Doberman Pinschers
Dogo Argentinos
Dogue de Bordeaux
Kuvacz
Mastiffs
Presa Canarios
Rottweilers
Staffordshire Bull Terriers
Tosa Inu
And in some communities - any dog over 100 lbs.
Instead of enforcing laws, they make these dogs suffer - they make their responsible owners suffer. Let's put an end to the suffering.

Stop The Spread of Fear and Hate

Light a candle and save a life. No matter where you are, no matter what breed of dog you own, tell you friends and neighbors. Tell every dog owner you know about this vigil, and ask them to join you. Gather your friends and family, your dog-loving neighbors.

No matter who you are, no matter what your faith, ask your spiritual leaders to bless the animals, to include mention this vigil in their messages to stop the slaughter of innocent dogs.

We must stop the spread of fear and hate.

We Can Stand Together

We can stand together to stop the spread fear, hate and ignorance. We can stand together to stop the slaughter of innocent dogs. We can stand together to overturn breed bans.

We can stand together to tell our elected officials:

STOP KILLING INNOCENT DOGS

And if they still don't listen to us, if they continue to slaughter innocent dogs, together we can take a stand to tell them My Dog Votesâ„¢ and vote them out of office.

Do It For The Dogs

My Dog Votesâ„¢ asks you to show your support and solidarity for innocent dogs by creating a candlelight vigil in your community.

Do it for Spencer and the Denver 38. Do it for all of the the dogs who have suffered or been slaughtered by ignorance.

My Dog Votes is asking that you gather peacefully in your local park or on the steps of your municipal building at 8 PM EST on Sunday, August 20th at 8 PM EST.

Hi, Julie!

Sorry, I missed your response!

We are going to set up a WORLDWIDE vigil--so everyone should be thinking about setting up a candle-lighting in their own town. It would be wonderful if you could help, Julie.

Step one is to let My Dog Votes know you'll be participating--the details on how to do it are here:

I'll also drop you a note privately!
