Spay Day USA 2008

February 26th is Spay Day here in the United States. This event is sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States, and its intention is to help inspire people to spaying and neutering pets and feral cats to decrease the amount of homeless and unwanted animals. Events and activities are taking place throughout the entire month of February, and the official Spay Day is February 26th.

For those of you who LOVE taking pictures of your pets: They are also sponsoring a photo contest, starting February 1st! According to the website:
You'll be able to upload a digital photo of your pet and briefly tell us how he or she has improved your life. Your pet will then compete with other pets for a chance to win fabulous prizes. Prizes will be awarded to photos and write-ups with the most votes and those judged best by our panel of celebrity judges.

One of these judges is Patrick McDonnell, creator and author of the Mutts comic strip.

You can find more information about the photo contest here. There are also links from that page to find an event near you. I encourage you to check it out and participate as you are able! And if you have a pet that needs spaying or neutering, then February is the month to do it!
