World Spay Day

Happy World Spay Day or, as Whiskey and Boris refer to it, Bye, Bye Balls Day.
World Spay Day is observed the last Tuesday in February as part of the annual campaign of the HSUS, Humane Society International and the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association. The day shines a spotlight on the power of affordable, accessible spay/neuter to save the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in shelters or killed on the street.

The event first started as Spay Day USA, an annual event created by the Doris Day Animal League (DDAL) in 1995, to promote spays and neuters across the country to help eliminate the problem of homeless pets. After the DDAL's merger with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) in 2006, the tradition continued under the auspices of the HSUS as World Spay Day.

Whiskey and Boris want you to know that they have been ball-free for years, and don't miss them at all.
