My Dog Votes Candlelight Vigil Against Breed Bans August 19th

I'm glad you'll be joining us for the My Dog Votes 3rd Annual Worldwide Candlelight Vigil Against Breed Bans on August 19th at 8 PM.
We'd like to announce the launch of a new website as the official site of the vigil: www.LightACandleSav LIGHT A CANDLE, SAVE A LIFE Light A Candle, Save A Life has the news, information, and sharing to help people connect, get organized or just learn more about how they can help stop breed bans. We started the vigil three years ago 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. I posted it on the DogPolitics. com blog to tell the world that these horrific laws were killing innocent dogs - and hurting good dog owners. The vigil as grown from 24 locations in 2005 to over 200 locations scheduled for 2007. STAND UP FOR INNOCENT DOGS We need you now more than ever, as breed bans, fear and ignorance are sweeping the world.
