SAVE LIVES, SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR PET
Pet overpopulation is the number 1 cause of animal cruelty. When people are inconvenienced by too many cats or dogs, they turn to cruel dumping or releasing of their pets into the streets or sidewalks.
In these situations, dumped ex-housepets are at the highest risk of getting run over or targeted by cruel individuals.
It is with this in mind that animal welfare groups all over the world celebrate International Spay Day – an event intended to encourage people to spay or neuter their companion animals.
Strictly speaking, Spay Day is celebrated on the last Tuesday of February of every year but the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), which launched the event, announced that Spay Day can be celebrated throughout the whole month of February.
