What: An annual campaign of Humane Society International to inspire people to save animal lives by spaying or neutering pets and street animals.
When: Officially the last Tuesday of February, with events and activities taking place throughout the month of February. The second annual Spay Day International (and 15th annual Spay Day USA) is Feb. 24, 2009.
Why: Millions of cats and dogs are needlessly euthanized each year. They may be street animals, or 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.
What's Next: Organize an event in your community for Spay Day International 2009.
