Spay Day USA

February 23, 2023 All day

February 23rd is Spay Day USA!

Spay Day USA is an annual observance in the United States that falls on the last Tuesday in February. The day is dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering pets to reduce pet overpopulation and improve the health and well-being of animals.

The event was first established in 1995 by the Doris Day Animal League, a national animal welfare organization founded by actress and animal rights activist Doris Day. Since then, Spay Day USA has grown into a nationwide campaign, with events and activities organized by animal welfare groups, shelters, and veterinary clinics across the country.

On Spay Day USA, many organizations offer low-cost or free spay/neuter services for pets, as well as educational programs and outreach activities to promote the benefits of spaying and neutering. The day is also an opportunity to advocate for public policies that support spaying and neutering, such as mandatory spay/neuter laws or incentives for pet owners to spay and neuter their animals.

Spaying and neutering can help reduce the number of unwanted pets in shelters and on the streets, as well as improve the health and behavior of animals. It can also help reduce the risk of certain types of cancer and other health problems in pets. Overall, Spay Day USA is a valuable opportunity to promote responsible pet ownership and make a positive impact on the lives of animals in our communities.

Happy Spay Day USA!
