World Spay Day

We can't think of anything more important than spaying and neutering your pets. Many organizations - here in the US and across the country have gotten together to spread the word through World Spay Day.

As someone in animal rescue, mom finds nothing more frustrating than people who refuse to spay or neuter their pets. There is a SERIOUS overpopulation problem that can be at least partly resolved if people would be responsible.

Did you know that Petsmart Charities even has a locator service on their website to help people find local services in their area?  Click here to find out more

And Best Friends Animal Society started their Fix at Four outreach program to make people aware that pets can start having litters as early as four months. Our local low cost clinic will do pediatric surgeries for the public at 3 months old (that way they can do the rabies vaccine at the same time).

Please - be part of the solution!!

  1. Good advice for everyone, not just cat and dog owners.

    How is your grandma doing? Well, I hope.

  2. Thank you for this information! I am amazed at the number of people I talk to at adoption events who haven't spayed or neutered their pets because it's "too expensive". Yikes.

  4. We can only keep sending out the message, day in and day out. I loved Best Friend's campaign; they had posters up in malls! This is something they can teach in school to the kids, right? Start 'em young!

  6. My human does not understand people who don't spay and neuter their pets - even her GRANDMOTHER was doing it with her cat in the 1950s.

  7. 20 years ago I brought my rabbit in to be spayed.. the staff asked me why, I said because everything in my house gets neutered.. period.

  10. Thank you for sharing this message. When you think about the numbers of dogs and cats who are euthanized every day because they are not wanted or loved, it staggers one. And it is preventable.
