The shocking truth about homeless animals

Clyde - adoptable male cat at Humane Society of Pinellas

Every year, millions of healthy animals that would have made great pets, needlessly suffer and die. In the United States alone, it is estimated that between six and eight million companion animals are brought to animal shelters nationwide. Approximately half are adopted and half euthanized.

Sadly, these are not just the offspring of homeless strays and street animals; they are the kittens and puppies of pets that have not been spayed or neutered and are allowed to breed either intentionally or accidentally.

On February 28, 2012, The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International are hosting World Spay Day along with animal welfare organizations, veterinary professionals, businesses and individuals worldwide. Their goal is to shine a spotlight on spaying and neutering as a proven way of saving the lives of superfluous pets, feral cats and street dogs.

Would you like to become a part of the solution? You can get involved by sharing the message of World Spay Day, supporting spay/neuter efforts, and informing others of the importance of spaying and neutering.

If you or someone you know has a pet that is in need of spaying or neutering, The Day & Evening Pet Clinic in Palm Harbor offers low cost spaying and neutering. To make it convenient for their clients, the vet office located at 3206 Alternate 19 is open six days a week and has extended office hours Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-2 p.m. They do accept walk-ins, or you can call (727) 785-7200 to set an appointment.

You can make a difference – by being a part of the solution!
