To support the 16th Spay Day, The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International
host the Spay Day Online Pet Photo Contest. Raise
funds for spaying and neutering, and win great prizes. Simply upload a digital photo of your pet and tell something about him or her. You can also enter as a memorial tribute to a pet who is no longer with us. Deadline for entering is Friday February 26.
Animal overpopulation is an issue not only because up to 3 million shelter animals are euthanized in the U.S. each year, but also because of the environmental impact of too many stray and abandoned animals: they can harm local wildlife, deposit waste, and spread trash. Help solve this problem by having your pet spayed or neutered. Many animal shelters have a local clinic. They may also offer vouchers to have your dog spayed or neutered at a lower cost by local, private veterinarians. You can find a shelter near you at www.pets911.com, animalshelter.org, Humane Society or call SPAY/USA at 1-800-248-SPAY (7729). Read about Frequent Q&A about this topic.
