FREE SPAYS AND NEUTERS FROM THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF TULSA!
TULSA, OK–It is a heart-breaking fact: there are, literally, millions more dogs and cats in the United States than there are people willing to provide them with a loving home. According to the Humane Society of the United States, more than 3 million cats and dogs are euthanized in shelters every year. To encourage more pet owners to spay and neuter their pets, the Humane Society of Tulsa is expanding its usual “Spay Day” in February to “Spay Month.” This means
HST will be giving away free spays and neuters and pet owners have until February 13th to apply for the free assistance courtesy of local veterinarians. And to make it easier, pet owners can register in person or via the internet.
“Spay/neuter protects pet health, improves pet behavior and lessens the burden on animal shelters and taxpayers,” says Gina Gardner, President of the Humane Society of Tulsa. “We are inviting our citizens to register for the spay or neuter of at least one animal in honor of Spay Day USA 2010.”
Advantages of spaying and neutering include:
*Helping the community. Homeless animals get into the trash and they may attack or bite.
*Spaying or neutering means you will not contribute to the overpopulation of animals.
*Spaying or neutering also helps reduce the risk of some health problems and can also reduce some behavioral problems in some animals.
*Stop by the adoption center, 6232 E. 60th Street (near 60th and S. Sheridan), Monday-Saturday from 10am-5pm
