World Spay Day

Today is World Spay Day! World Spay Day is an annual campaign of The HSUS, Humane Society International and the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association. Originally created by the Doris Day Animal League in 1995 as Spay Day USA, World Spay Day has now been recognized by nearly 70 countries.

On the last Tuesday of every February, World Spay Day shines a spotlight on the power of affordable, accessible spay/neuter to save the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in shelters or killed on the street.

We think this is an important cause and wanted to help spread the word. To learn more about World Spay Day, and why you should spay or neuter your pets, please visit the World Spay Day page on the HSUS website. You can even sponsor a spay/neuter surgery if you would like.

The next World Spay Day is February 27, 2018 and will mark the 24th annual World Spay Day. Mark your calendars and help promote this great cause.
