★WORLD SPAY DAY - A REFERENCE ★


As an aid, in recognition of World Spay Day today, we have created the following reference for those who are interested in spaying/neutering dogs and/or cats.

World Spay Day is an annual campaign created by the Doris Day Animal League in 1994 to bring attention to the pet overpopulation problem in the USA, and to encourage animal population control by neutering/spaying pets. It shines a spotlight on spay/neuter as a way to save the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs. Spay Day USA has helped in decreasing the population of street dogs and cats throughout the US, which is very helpful as it decreases the number of unwanted animals.
