The Success of World Spay Day 2014

June 3, 2014

More than 40 countries participated in the 20th World Spay Day, which took place in February. Altogether, more than 68,000 animals were spayed or neutered as a result of the efforts of organizations across the country and around the world. Spaying and neutering proves one of the most effective means for reducing the number of homeless pets. In recognition of this crucial fact, the organizing groups passed 24 resolutions supporting spaying and neutering in February, which has been designated as Spay/Neuter Awareness Month.

Recently, The Humane Society of the United States recognized nine organizations that created World Spay Day events with grants totaling $50,000. Made possible by the Doris Day Animal Foundation and Abaxis, these grants will bolster these organizations’ future awareness efforts and allow them to create even stronger and larger events next February. The recipients of these grants are based in Washington, Arkansas, Arizona, California, West Virginia, and Colorado and were chosen for the effectiveness of their events and awareness efforts. The next World Spay Day will take place on February 24, 2015.
