The numbers can seem overwhelming. Every year, PAWS takes in and shelters thousands of homeless cats and dogs who arrive at our door in need of care. These are the lucky ones. Millions more companion animals across the country will struggle to survive on the streets without food, shelter or hope.

In an effort to combat pet overpopulation and reduce the number of homeless animals in our community, PAWS will be participating in World Spay Day 2013, a campaign to shine a spotlight on spay/neuter—a proven way to save the lives of companion animals and safely control the animal population.

During the month of February, as part of the Spay Day campaign, PAWS will be offering low-cost spay and neuter surgeries in partnership with other local shelters and veterinary clinics in Washington State.

World Spay Day, a nationwide effort, aims to end the suffering of unwanted pets and homeless animals in our communities by preventing unplanned litters. Spaying and neutering is good for the community and a great way to help our animal friends live longer, healthier lives. Low-Cost Spay Neuter - Spay Day 2013

How you can help:


  1. Schedule an appointment. Look through the list of participating clinics and contact the clinic nearest you directly to make an appointment.

  2. Tell a friend. If your pet is already altered, please encourage your friends and family to do the same for their animals. Share with them the benefits of spaying and neutering.

  3. Not in Western Washington? Visit the HSUS Spay Day page to find an event in your area.

I have always spayed or neutered both my dogs and cats when people were saying there was no need to spay or neuter a cat.
Not very bright people, anyway I think that is a great idea to help owners know how important it is not only for the community but the safely and health of the animals
