Stray Animals of Asia Night Market

Fun, Asian Night Market filled with food, drink, and beautiful handmade crafts. All the proceeds go to helping our efforts to support the unwanted animals in Thailand, India and Myanmar!  May 19, 3-7pm in Wayland (details on eventbrite page linked below)

Millions of these stray dogs and cats and other animals need the basics – food, medical care, clean water, shelter. Too many of them roam the streets, starving, abused and tortured. The answer to avoid human animal conflict is to neuter them, vaccinate them and save them from being poisoned which is often their fate. The concept is called TNVR = Trap Neuter Vaccinate Release. By doing this, we avoid millions of unwanted and sick animals every year. Our dollars go very far in Asia – YOU can help me save them! Come, eat fun Asian cusine, drink, buy some beautiful handcrafted jewelry, textiles, art, antiques, Asian carpets, and SAVE LIVES ALL AT THE SAME TIME!!
