WHS Announces Spay Day 2008!
MILWAUKEE – The Wisconsin Humane Society invites cat guardians to celebrate Spay Day USA by having their cat spayed or neutered on February 26. Spay Day USA is a national day of action to reduce animal overpopulation and thus, prevent animal suffering.
Guardians will be charged veterinary fees on a sliding scale ranging from $10 and up, based on family income, size and other factors. Last year on Spay Day alone, WHS spayed over one hundred cats in an impressive effort. During the week of Spay Day, WHS treated about 250 dogs and cats! This year, WHS veterinarians, volunteer veterinarians and WHS vet technicians will work to surpass last year’s success.
In addition to Spay Day, the Wisconsin Humane Society also offers the Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP), which is the perfect solution for individuals who understand the benefit of spaying or neutering their cat or dog but cannot afford to do so. WHS vets perform the surgery and charge fees based upon a sliding scale, which is geared toward people with low incomes.
To register your cat for Spay Day, please call (414) 431-6132. For information about the SNAP program, call (414) ANIMALS. Excellent information about the benefits of having your animals spayed or neutered can also be found on the WHS website at www.wihumane.org.
