What is Spay Day USA?

February 24, 2009

Today we celebrate the 15th annual spay day, brought to you by the Humane Society of the United States of America.   (www.humanesociety.org/spayday)  This is officially the last Tuesday in February every year!

“Four million cats and dogs—about one every eight seconds—are put down in U.S. shelters each year. Often these animals are the offspring of cherished family pets, even purebreds. Maybe someone’s cat or dog got out just that one time or maybe the litter was intentional, but efforts to find enough good homes failed. Spay/neuter is the only permanent, 100-percent effective method of birth control for dogs and cats and a proven way to reduce the vast numbers of animals who are born only to die prematurely and without a family who loves them. Learn more about why you should spay or neuter your pet.”,  says the Humane Society.

My mission is to encourage responsible pet ownership. So if you haven’t spayed or neutered your pet —  then I implore you to do so today!
