February is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month and Delaware Humane Association is celebrating this vital mission by holding a free spay/neuter surgery day for cats and dogs on Feb. 28 to aid pet owners who are having financial difficulties.
This special opportunity is the second of two free surgery days funded by proceeds from the SPAY AWAY Costume Ball, which was held on Oct. 12 of 2012 in Arden. The first was held in January of 2013 and the schedule filled up fast. Hence, pet owners who wish to take advantage of DHA's remaining free surgery day are urged to act now to reserve a spot by calling (888) DHA-SPAY or 571-0111.
The goal of the SPAY AWAY Costume Ball was to raise spay/neuter or emergency medical funding for three local animal welfare organizations (Delaware Humane Association, Forgotten Cats and Response-a-Bull Rescue), in an effort to help reduce pet overpopulation in our community. The event raised nearly $12,000, resulting in a donation of more than $4,000 to support DHA's low cost spay/neuter program.
