Today, February 24th, is World Spay Day! Spay Day was originally started by the Doris Day Animal League in California……..at least 25 years ago. And yes, I remember when the first Spay Day USA was celebrated. In the last 25 years, the spay/neuter movement has HALVED the number of euthanasias of dogs and cats in shelters in the US. Today, 5-6 million pets are killed in shelters EVERY YEAR. We CAN stop the killing and make sure that every dog and cat has a home – just by advocating for spay and neuter. Today, make an appointment for your cat or dog to be altered if he isn’t already. Or, help a friend or neighbor alter their pet. Or, send a donation to a local spay/neuter organization. You CAN be a lifesaver!
