Florida's First Annual Week for the Animals starts tomorrow and continues through next Sunday. On Tuesday, Governor Crist issued a proclamation recognizing the problem with overpopulation and the joy that companion animals bring.
In addition to Governor Crist's endorsement, a number of non-profits and other animal organizations have joined in supporting the events, including the Animal Law Coalition, which issued this press release applauding the efforts that led up to the governor's proclamation.
Be sure to check out the calendar for events taking place in your part of the state. You can also join the Florida Week for the Animals facebook page here.
