World Spay Day is an annual campaign of The HSUS, Humane Society International and the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association. On the last Tuesday of every February, we shine a spotlight on spay/neuter as a way to save the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in shelters or killed on the street. The 21st annual World Spay Day is February 24, 2015. Spread the message!


Make Every Day Spay Day!

Don't wait for the last Tuesday in February to celebrate World Spay Day! When you spay or neuter your pet, you make your pet healther and you make life easier for the both of you. You also help solve the tragic problem of pet overpopulation. Start today!
