Today, Feb. 25, is World Spay Day 2014!

Happy World Spay Day! We’re working with the Humane Society of the United States, Humane Society International and other organizations to get the word out that spaying and neutering saves lives — and you can help!

Through the end of February, animal organizations are hosting low-cost spay/neuter events in an effort to sterilize a total of 60,000 pets, feral cats and street dogs around the world. Find a low-cost spay/neuter event near you.

You can help spread the word! Here are some easy ways to raise awareness:

  • Find a low-cost spay/neuter event happening in your area and share it on Facebook, Twitter and your other social networks.
  • Add a World Spay Day 2014 Spay/Neuter Counter Widget to your website. Simply embed this code: <iframe width=”241″ height=”385″ src=”https://worldspayday.org/widget/widget.asp&#8221; frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen></iframe> (Learn more about how the counter works here.)
  • Volunteer at a spay/neuter event! Organizations near you may need volunteers to check in clients, monitor recovering animals, staff information tables, or help spread the word. Learn more about volunteering at spay/neuter events.

After dogs and cats, rabbits are the companion-animal species most likely to end up in U.S. shelters.
