HELP SAVE PETS FROM BEING PUT TO SLEEP
February 11, 2013My family has always tried to save animals in shelters that are at risk of being put to sleep, but we can’t save them all. Every year, millions of cats and dogs suffer and die in the United States and around the world. Nationwide, an estimated 6-8 million homeless kittens, puppies, cats, and dogs enter animal shelters every year. Tragically, about half are put down. Most of those are healthy, sweet pets who would have made great companions but sometimes there are just not enough loving homes.
World Spay Day (February 26) shines a spotlight on spay/neuter as a permanent, 100-percent effective method of birth control for cats and dogs. When we spay or neuter pets, feral cats, and other street animals, we ensure those animals and their offspring will not add to the millions of already suffering animals. The message of World Spay Day is that by spaying or neutering your pet, by supporting spay/neuter efforts in the United States and abroad, and by informing others of the importance of spay/neuter, you become an important part of the solution!
