Help Prevent Millions of Surplus Births – Support Spay Day

The DogSmith National Dog Training and Pet Care Franchise sponsors events honoring the 16th annual Spay Day on Tuesday, February 23, 2010.

Florida February 17, 2010 - Spay Day USA takes place each year on the last Tuesday of February. Created by the Doris Day Animal League (DDAL) in 1995, Spay Day became a program of The Humane Society of the US (HSUS) and Humane Society International (HSI) when DDAL combined operations with The HSUS in 2006.

Spay Day is the first and only international day of action to promote the spaying or neutering of pets. During Spay Day, veterinarians and their staff, animal welfare professionals, business owners, and concerned citizens join forces to spay or neuter as many animals as possible, and to promote spay/neuter as the most effective and humane means of decreasing the number of homeless animals euthanized every year. In fifteen years of Spay Day programs more than 1,470,000 animals have been spayed or neutered preventing millions of surplus births and saving millions of taxpayers’ dollars.

One of the primary purposes of The DogSmith, as expressed in their mission statement, includes supporting and assisting Humane Societies, animal shelters and rescue organizations to minimize the number of unwanted animals. In pursuit of this, locally owned and operated DogSmith Dog Training and Pet Care Franchises support the HSUS Spay day by participating in local events and sponsoring spay/neuter coupons.

Please get involved! Events are planned in many communities, and everyone is welcome.  Visit for more information and to find out what is planned for your state or community.  You can also make a donation to help the animals.
