The Nova Scotia SPCA is celebrating World Spay Day, Feb 28 2017, with a goal to provide 100 Spay or Neuter surgeries across the province to low income pet owners for no cost.
Are you a caring pet owner who has been unable to get your pet spayed/neutered due to financial or other barriers? This program may be for you.
Pets are a beloved part of our families. Our hope is that this program will improve the lives of families aided by this initiative, not only the lives of the companion animals but also their human caretakers. A spayed/neutered pet is less likely to become lost and stray, less likely to develop behaviour issues so more likely to remain with their family.
Many caring pet owners struggle to afford spay/neuter services before their pet reaches maturity at only 6 months of age. When a family pet has a litter, that adds to the overpopulation problem in Nova Scotia and puts a strain on the caretakers as well as shelters and rescue groups, even when rehomed privately those rehomed pets may eventually end up at a shelter or rescue.
Spay Day HRM, is also aiming to accomplish 100 spay/neuter surgeries in celebration of World Spay Day by targeting two areas, the community of Indianbrook and Federal Ave area of Halifax while the SPCA efforts will focus on other areas of the province. This effort will take a team of volunteers to coordinate and transport but will have a lasting impact to those helped. Great work Linda and Spay Day team!
