A Protest of the Removal of LA Animal
Services Commissioner Kathy Riordan

An Outrage…Please Act!**

February Was Spay / Neuter Awareness Month…Oops!

Spay and Neuter Month of February

So while I did tell you that February was Prevent a Litter Month, I neglected to tell you that it was also Spay/Neuter Awareness Month.  And it culminated February 26th on World Spay Day!

Like Prevent a Litter Month, Spay/Neuter Awareness month is designed to shine a spotlight on the importance of spaying/neutering dogs and cats to assist in curbing the gross overpopulation of animals in our city shelters and running the streets.  The Human Society of the United States (HSUS) and Humane Society International created World Spay Day as a way to save the lives of companion animals, feral cats and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in a shelter or killed on the street.
