Spay and Neutering

Spay and Neutering

World Spay Day is an annual campaign of the HSUS and Humane Society International that shines a spotlight on spay/neuter.

Fixing your pet is called spaying/neutering; this means fewer pets added to the overpopulation in our states. Spaying/neutering is a proven way to save the lives of companion animals, feral cats, and stray dogs that might otherwise be put down in a shelter or killed on the street.

One of the kindest things you can do for animals, spaying and neutering saves lives when millions of dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States every year due to overpopulation. States have estimated having over 60 million homeless animals in the U.S. alone with close to 125,000 dogs and cats euthanized in Illinois animal controls and shelters (according to the Department of Agriculture in 2006).

Together we can make efforts toward ending the suffering of homeless pets!
