National Spay and Neuter Day sponsored by HSUS

Why a National Spay and Neuter Day?

Because hundreds of puppies and kittens are born every minute in the US. And while almost everyone loves baby animals, many people do not train their baby animals and suddenly the adorable dog or cat is a problem that ends up in the local shelter or worse. The fate of many of these adorable animals is tragic.

That's whey the Humane Society of the US has a month long program in February and a special Spay and Neuter day on February 27. Spaying or neutering is the most effective way to reduce the vast numbers of animals. Please do not consider animal disposible. Please spay and neuter your animals. There are lots of excuses for not spaying and neutering animals. But the key reason to spay and nueter is to protect the animals! Check out the HSUS Website for more information on how to support spay and neutering programs. Check out the facts at this site. For example: One out of four animals in shelters is a pure breed.
