Today, Feb 25, 2014, is the 20th Annual World Spay Day, a campaign of The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International that shines a spotlight on spay/neuter as a way to save the lives of pets, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in a shelter or killed on the street.

Getting your pet spayed or neutered can reduce the number of homeless pets killed, improve your pet’s health, reduce some undesirable behaviors, and save on the costs of pet care. Maybe you already knew that, but many people don’t know about the benefits of spay/neuter.

Here are three ways you can celebrate World Spay Day today:

Every year, millions of companion animals suffer and die in the United States and around the world. Be a part of the solution and promote spay/neuter! Make every day Spay Day!
