Save Millions of Pets: National Spay Day
Just a quick note to let you know that today is National Spay Day.
Each year, approximately 6-8 million homeless pets enter shelters that are stretched to the breaking point. Sadly, about half of those animals have their shelter stay end in euthanasia rather than adoption.
FROM THE HUMANE SOCIETY:
For families that can provide a loving home for a pet, not enough of them can afford the surgery to prevent a litter from being born. That’s where you can make the biggest difference: Today you can team up with The Humane Society of the United States and our Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association to provide free or low-cost spay and neuter services for pets living with families in underserved
Last year, we achieved so much together -- thanks to our combined efforts, our staff and volunteer veterinarians spayed or neutered more than 32,000 pets.
