February 28th is National Spay Day

In honor of the 18th Annual National Spay Day, Minnesota Spay Neuter
Assistance Program (MN SNAP)
has organized its 2nd annual Spay-a-thon. The MN SNAP mobile surgical van will be at Minneapolis Animal Care and Control (MACC) to perform surgeries for at least 150 animals. And area veterinarians will volunteer their time and services to perform spay/neuters at their offices on animals from the MN SNAP waiting list.

MN SNAP estimates that in Minnesota alone, over 90,000 companion animals a year are euthanized due primarily to overpopulation issues. The Spay-a-thon will help bring needed attention to this issue, facilitate the spay/neuter of many animals on MN SNAP’s waiting list, and help MN SNAP to continue doing the important work that they do every day. MN SNAP’s mission is “to end the suffering and death of homeless animals due to pet overpopulation by providing high-quality, affordable, and accessible spay and neuter services to Minnesota shelters, rescue organizations, and the companion animals of the low-income community.”

MN SNAP clinics will also be held at Feline Rescue this week on February 26th and March 2nd. Feline Rescue supports and greatly appreciates the good work of the folks at MN SNAP and is happy to provide a location for MN SNAP’s St. Paul clinics on a regular basis.

Help us prevent unwanted litters and ease the suffering of homeless pets. Spay and Neuter.
