FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:February 6, 2012
The Seattle Humane Society is holding a low-fee Neuter and Spay Day for Cats on Feb. 28 as part of Spay Day USA!

Appointments are currently full for female cat spay surgeries. Check back for possible openings on Monday, February 20. If spay appointments are still full on February 20, please check back for future Spay Day events.
Ten local animal shelters and more than 40 private veterinary clinics are also partnering to make spaying and neutering your pet affordable and convenient during the month of February.

Spaying/neutering keeps pets from producing unwanted litters and it actually improves pets' health! The simple surgery reduces reproductive cancers in females and prostate cancer in males. Other benefits include making them less likely to roam and become injured, less likely to spray or mark, and less likely to exhibit dominant behavior.
Seattle Humane Society’s Neuter and Spay Day for Cats is made possible thanks to a $5,000 grant from The Washington Federation of Animal Care and Control Agencies. The funds for this grant award are made possible by the sale of Washington State “We Love Our Pets” license plates.
