My husband and I have a cogal and a cocker spaniel.
Our cogal (part cocker /part golden retriever) is a sweetheart, well mannered and pampered because of it. She is five years old and we were blessed to find her at a rescue when she was less than 18 months old. Because we received her from a rescue Heidie had already been spayed.
Now we have our big cocker boy puppy. He is completely a lover, but gets into alot of trouble these days because since he is now over 6 months old, he is taking on a persnickity habit of trying to 'tag' every corner he finds, including those on walls and furniture. We have been told that is part of the male process from puppy to adult dog and that it will only get worse if we don't choose to neuter him, so I went looking for reasonable priced options that are safe and affordable.
I discovered that there is help for low income families for spaying or neutering their pets, called "spay usa", but I also located information about low cost spaying and neutering that is done as a special pledge by veterinarians nationwide each year. This year it is in the month of February (some areas-- part of February & March).Its call SPAY DAY.
If this sounds like something that would be helpful you can find a SPAY DAY near you by using the following link and putting in your zipcode.

The Humane Society sent me this email today, so I am sharing it because it relates to what I wrote about SPAY DAY previously.

February 27 is Spay Day USA, and The Humane Society of the United States is partnering with local groups to get tens of thousands of pets spayed and neutered.

Thousands of puppies and kittens are born every hour in the United States, and many will never find homes. Fortunately, spaying and neutering is a solution that we can all be a part of. It's simple, effective, and saves pets' lives for generations to come.

This year, The HSUS is thrilled to offer you fun and easy ways to get involved with Spay Day USA events throughout the country. Last year, 29,000 cats, dogs, and other animals were reported spayed or neutered at these events. I know that together we can make an even bigger impact this year.

Here's how you can be a part of the solution:


Set a goal to help pets in the community of your choice or nationwide. Did you know that $75 will spay/neuter one cat or dog?* That might seem like a lot, but when you enlist your family and friends to help raise money for this worthy cause, you can set a goal to help spay or neuter five, ten, twenty, or more pets! It's easy to get started, and you can do it all online.


Volunteer. Check out the local events planned this month and volunteer to help. If you can't find an event in your community, then organize one!


Spay or neuter your pet. If you haven't done this already, please schedule an appointment now. And make sure your friends, family, and neighbors know why it's important to spay or neuter their pets, too. Our downloadable brochure can help.



We hope you'll participate in Spay Day USA this year and help us reach our goal of getting 35,000 pets spayed or neutered nationwide. With your help, I know we can make Spay Day USA 2007 a howling success!

Sincerely,

Wayne Pacelle
President & CEO
The Humane Society of the United States

*It costs an average of $75 to spay or neuter a cat or dog through our national program that provides low-cost spay and neuter services to geographically isolated areas, called Rural Area Veterinary Services (RAVS). Costs vary greatly from community to community, and the high cost of services in some areas makes it difficult for many to afford. That's why your help is so important.
