World Spay Day is a great opportunity to not only make a difference, but also educate pet parents and caretakers on the importance and benefits of sterilization (Spay/Neuter). It is an event that joins everyone around the world in one single effort to help control pet overpopulation and decrease the number of homeless and euthanized animals in our areas.
It is amazing to be part of something so great, something celebrated worldwide. Hence, we request everyone to kindly support us and be a part of a great cause.
