Dear Editor,

The Doris Day Animal Foundation’s ninth annual Spay Day USA takes place on February 25, 2003. DDAF created Spay Day USA in 1995 to encourage each humane American to help solve the country’s severe pet overpopulation problem by having at least one cat or dog spayed or neutered. Since its inception, Spay Day participants have altered more than 835,000 animals. DDAF expects this number to surpass 1,000,000 after Spay Day USA 2003.

Spaying or neutering all our animal companions is the only way to prevent surplus births and the misery of homeless animals who often end up losing their lives. It’s good for pets, their guardians and the community. Spayed or neutered pets usually enjoy better health and behavior. Guardians save on vet bills and the community saves the high cost of caring for stray animals. And the savings in suffering to cats, dogs, and other pets is priceless.

Please consider sponsoring the spay or neuter surgery for an animal in honor of Spay Day USA 2003. This could be your own pet, a friend’s, a feral cat, or a homeless shelter animal. Call us at 625-6233 for details on how to do that.

Together, we can make a difference!
