|Light A Candle, Save A Life On August 19th - Join The Vigil
A Special Invitation.............From Cephus and family.
On August 19th at 8 PM, please join dog owners all over the world to Light A Candle, Save A Life in the My Dog Votes 3rd Annual Worldwide Candlelight Vigil Against Breed Bans.
Help take a stand against breed bans and tell the world to stop killing innocent dogs. This is a peaceful way to send a very powerful message to legislators and other organizations that we have a voice and a vote, and that we need laws based on Deed, Not Breed.
LIGHT A CANDLE, SAVE A LIFE
In the spirit of Deed, Not Breed, we'd like to announce the launch of a new website as the official site of the vigil: http://www.lightacandlesavealife.com
LightACandleSave A Life.com has news, information and tools to help people connect, get organized or ................
just learn more about what they can do to help stop breed bans in their own communities.
THE HISTORY OF THE MDV VIGIL
The vigil started three years ago, in 2005, by a pitbull owner and the founder of the My Dog Votes T-Shirt company, to stand in solidarity with dog owners in Ontario, Canada, who were also holding a vigil to mark the enactment of the province-wide breed ban, and as the means to commemorate the breed ban that had just been re-enacted in Denver.
In 2005 - we posted it on the DogPolitics.com blog to tell the world that these horrific laws were killing innocent dogs - and hurting good dog owners. Today - the vigil as grown from 24 locations in 2005 to over 200 locations scheduled for 2007.
