Spay Day 2010

February 23rd is Spay Day. 

Spay Day is an annual campaign of The Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society International. The goal of this yearly event is to inspire pet owners and other animal lovers to save animal lives by spaying or neutering their pet.

Spay Day is held on the last Tuesday of February each year. This event includes special activities and contests (including pet photo contests and children's coloring contests) for animal lovers worldwide.
