Today is the Humane Society of the United States’ 17th annual Spay Day, dedicated to spreading the word about the importance of spaying and neutering pets.
To celebrate, shelters, rescue groups and vets’ offices around the world are holding low- or no-cost spay/neuter clinics. If you know someone who hasn’t yet had their pet altered, let them know they can find a clinic near them at HSUS’s website.
There are other fun opportunities are out there as well — the Bayonne Feral Cat Foundation in New Jersey needs volunteers to help put up flyers today, and the Lowell Humane Society in Massachusetts is hosting a “Spay-ghetti” dinner and fundraiser, to name just two. (Find a Spay Day event near you.)
Can’t go today? You’re in luck: Many Spay Day events and deals are month-long. Visit HumaneSociety.org to learn more.
