Here at PAWS, we like to celebrate victories for the animals, be they big or small. So we're ready to put on our party shoes and pop the bubbly, because this year's World Spay Day 2014 event was a record-breaking success!

Happy Spay Day clients leaving PAWSDuring the month of February, as part of the international World Spay Day campaign, PAWS and other local shelter partners performed an incredible 1,333 low-cost spay and neuter surgeries here in Washington State—breaking last year's amazing record by 310 surgeries!

With 46 clinics and 14 shelter partners participating in World Spay Day last month, pet owners all across the region were able to take advantage of these affordable surgery options for their companion animals.

In total, 892 cats, 425 dogs and 16 rabbits were altered during the month-long event!

This year’s collaborative efforts also helped reach animals in communities with restricted access to low-cost spay/neuter surgery. This was especially true in rural counties, where 100 percent of the World Spay Day surgeries were completed by private clinics. 

"After 19 years of spearheading World Spay Day efforts in the Puget Sound, we're proud to see the continued growth and success of this event each year," says Kay Joubert, Director of Companion Animal Services at PAWS.

"We're excited to collaborate with the veterinary community and our animal welfare colleagues for World Spay Day 2015 next year!" 

Missed Spay Day 2014? Please refer to a list of clinics that offer low-cost spay/neuter surgeries year-round. Please spay and neuter your pets, and encourage friends and family to do the same for their animals!

Thank you for participating in Spay Day 2014!
