Kansas City, Missouri – February 19, 2013 Spay & Neuter Kansas City announces that World Spay Day takes place on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2013 and that February is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month. SNKC is offering a “Beat the Heat” promotion to commemorate this event and will spay female cats or neuter male cats both for one special rate of $15 each for the entire month of February.

Nationwide, The Humane Society of the United States estimates that 6-8 million homeless kittens, puppies, cats, and dogs enter animal shelters every year. About half of these animals are adopted. Tragically, the other half are put down. The majority of animals euthanized are healthy, sweet pets who would have made great companions.

Here in the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area, there are approximately 10,000 animals that are put down in local shelters each year. Many of these animals could have been saved. Spay/neuter is a permanent, 100-percent effective method of birth control for cats and dogs. When you spay or neuter pets, you ensure those animals and their offspring will not add to the pet overpopulation problem.

The World Spay Day is an annual campaign to promote spaying and neutering as a proven, effective means of preventing pet overpopulation and saving animals’ lives. Become a part of the solution! Please call 816-353-0940 for more information or to schedule an appointment. You can also go online to www.snkc.net and fill out an online surgery appointment form. Hurry, the promotion is based on availability and spaces are filling up fast!

Spay & Neuter Kansas City is a 501C3 nonprofit organization formed to promote spaying and neutering as a primary means of decreasing pet overpopulation. Through education and provision of resources, their goal is to keep animals out of our shelters and improve their quality of life.
