happy healthy bonnie world spay day

DDAL celebrates 22 years of the World Spay Day program.

World Spay Day began in 1995 as Spay Day USA, created by the Doris Day Animal League to do two things: raise awareness of the critical importance of spay/neuter in reducing the number of animals euthanized in shelters, and to spay or neuter as many animals as possible.

Today, World Spay Day continues as a program of the Humane Society of the United States on the last Tuesday of every February.

Since 1995 World Spay Day efforts have focused on providing free spay/neuter services to underserved communities.
