Looking Back at World Spay Day 2021

World Spay Day is an annual event that takes place on the last Tuesday in February aimed at spreading awareness about the benefits of spaying and neutering your pet. The 26th annual World Spay Day took place on Tuesday, February 23rd, and was hugely successful. Our hard-working team provided free spay procedures to cats and dogs from three of our rescue partners. We also provided a few neuter surgeries to some boys who snuck in for the fun!

Thank you to the SPCA of Winchester, Frederick, & Clarke Counties, the Humane Society of Shenandoah County, and Rockingham-Harrisonburg SPCA for all that you do to help homeless animals! We’re proud to support your work.


The importance of spaying and neutering your pet continues beyond the World Spay Day celebration! By spaying or neutering your pet, you’re helping your community and giving your pet a happier, healthier life. Benefits of spaying or neutering your pet include:

1) Improves the health of your pet by reducing or completely preventing some serious illnesses.
2) Increases a pet’s life expectancy – on average, spayed or neutered dogs live 1 to 3 years longer, and spayed or neutered cats live 3 to 5 years longer
3) Lowers the number of homeless pets, helping reduce stress on local shelters and saving lives
4) Reduces behavioral concerns that are driven by hormones
