Spaying and neutering is critical to overcoming pet overpopulation in our area and worldwide. “Spay and neuter is the first step towards reducing homeless pets in our area,” said GBHS Cruelty Prevention Officer Phil Doster, “Educating the public on this important aspect of responsible pet ownership is just as important as feeding and caring for a pet.”
World Spay Day is an international effort to do just that. According to WSD’s website, more than 800 events have been held in the U.S. and abroad in February to further spay and neuter efforts.
The GBHS, FCDF and AL SNC are all partnering to offer $20 s/n certificates to the first 100 people who come to the GBHS. It all kicked off at 9 a.m. this morning, but there are still certificates left! Once we run out, they will still be here offering s/n services for the regular, reduced fee (price varies depending on pet), until 4 p.m. today.
