Spay & Neuter: Making A World Of Difference

February is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month and the 26th is World Spay Day. Begun in 1995 by the Doris Day Animal League to promote awareness of the dangers of pet overpopulation, the program has since been incorporated into the Humane Society (US and International). Hundreds of thousands of volunteers worldwide come together every February to offer information, dispel myths, and provide much needed sterilization services for animals that might not otherwise receive them.

We believe in the importance of responsible pet ownership, and encourage you to participate in World Spay Day by planning an event, volunteering at an existing event, spaying or neutering your pets, or sponsoring the spaying or neutering of a pet in need. You can also become a corporate sponsor for an event or offer veterinary expertise at a participating medical center.

Spaying and neutering is a permanent and one hundred percent effective method of birth control for dogs, as well as other household pets. With over six hundred million homeless and unwanted dogs in the world and millions killed in shelters in just the US every year, spaying and neutering is an easy, low-cost way of reducing the over-population problem and preventing the needless death of these wonderful animals.

According to the Humane Society, World Spay Day events “have included low- and no-cost spay/neuter clinics providing life-saving veterinary services for low-income families, fundraisers to benefit spay/neuter programs, and educational efforts spreading the message about the importance of spaying and neutering pets.”

Along with HSUS, the Humane Society International, and the Doris Day Animal Foundation, other World Spay Day partners include the ASPCA, the House Rabbit Society, Humane Alliance, the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association, Petfinder, and PetSmart Charities. Hundreds of events are taking place around the world. Please join us to help this event continue to grow so that we may reduce the worldwide problem of pet overpopulation.
