On February 24th and 26th, Alley Cat Rescue, with the assistance of the Brentwood Animal Hospital, participated in Spay Day USA, an annual event intended to provide low-cost spays and neuters to families around the country who want to have their pet fixed. Spaying and neutering is the first line of defense against pet homelessness. When an animal is spayed or neutered it gives other animals a greater chance of getting adopted, because there are not unnecessary litters taking up space. Spaying and neutering also provide health benefits, such as eliminating the risk of testicular or ovarian cancer. It also helps to curb unwanted behaviors, such as male cats spraying.
Our ability to participate in Spay Day USA is directly related to the support of our members, and ACR would like to thank each and every one of you!
A story about ACR’s Spay Day also appeared in the Maryland Gazette newspaper.
