Calling All Cats – The SF/SPCA Celebrates International Spay Day

San Francisco, CA, Feb 17 2010:

What

The San Francisco SPCA will participate in Spay Day – an international day of action to promote the spaying and neutering of pets. On Spay Day, the SF/SPCA offers a discounted rate for spay and neuter surgery for only $20.10. In addition, they will provide microchipping and nail trim treatments free of charge to support pet health in the community.

Throughout the day, veterinarians from the Leanne B. Roberts Animal Care Center will be available to discuss pet health tips.

Nearly 1.5 million pets have been spayed or neutered during Spay Day’s first fifteen years, helping to drive efforts to control pet population. Appointments for this year’s Spay Day have been fully booked.
