World Spay Day Is February 28th: How You Can Participate...It's Not What You Think!

Did you know that February is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month, and culminates in World Spay Day on February 28? This annual campaign  of the Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International shines a spotlight on spaying and neutering as a way to save the lives of companion animals, feral cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be killed on the street or euthanized in a shelter.

To support World Spay Day, the HSUS and HSI host the Spay Day Pet Photo Contest which is a fun way to celebrate our pets while raising funds for spaying and neutering-and there's an opportunity to win great prizes, too! It's simple to enter: just submit your favorite photo of your pet along with a few lines of relevant information about you and your best furfriend and you're all set. You can even enter directly on Facebook and upload a photo from your Facebook albums.

If you choose a favorite animal charity along with your submission, you can encourage friends and family (and perfect strangers, too!) to vote for your pet's photo for a minimum $1 donation-all proceeds go to help spay neuter projects around the world.

And even though we know you'll be participating out of the goodness of your heart, check out these fabulous prizes you and your pet can win in two categories: photocontest.humanesociety.org/contest.html?page=prizes&contestId=4

Remember that the photo contest runs until Tuesday, February 28th, so you still have plenty of time to enter-good luck! By the way, feel free to vote for my photo, below-we think it's pretty darn cute.
