Global Cat Day is a worldwide commitment to save cats from being killed. In many animal shelters, stray cats are given a limited amount of time to find a home before they’re put down. Since killing cats is unnecessary, Global Cat Day is meant to highlight awareness of keeping all cats alive until they can find a good home no matter how long it may take.

Becky Robinson, the president and founder of Alley Cat Allies, is asking everyone who values the lives of cats to sign the Alley Cat Allies’ Global Cat Day Pledge online.

“The Global Cat Day Pledge includes the fundamental principle that all cats have the right to live their lives, and it guides everything we do to protect cats,” Robinson said. “We stand for humane, non-lethal programs for cats, and those who join us can take action to stop cats from being killed.”
