The Spay Day-themed MUTTS™ comic strip,

Created by Cartoonist Patrick McDonnell,

Which ran yesterday in newspapers nationwide.



There were more than 700 Spay Day Events

Which were held yesterday, all across the USA

This is the only way, to stop pet over-population

Nearly 7 million American pets are homeless, today


More than half of these homeless pets, won't be adopted

They will so very sadly and tragically, soon be put down

Unless many more pet owners, start utilizing spay/neuter

There will be thousands more unwanted pets, in every town


In some communities, as many as 300,000 homeless pets, are now euthanized

Because their pet owners don’t spay or neuter, and they let their pets roam free

They don’t care very much at all, that their own pets impregnate someone else’s

This results in a never-ending cycle of unwanted pets, of all types and all breeds


You can help curb our nation’s tragic and massive pet overpopulation problem

By getting your own pets spayed and neutered, and by adopting your next pet

You can also get involved in TNR (trap, neuter, and return) feral feline programs

And, you can volunteer at local animal shelters, there’s a lot of work to be done yet


With your help, perhaps we can save another life or two;

The number of us attempting to help them, is far too few.

Sadly, I keep seeing examples that there's not enough awareness of the problem (thousands of homeless pets, and more being dumped, neglected, abused, and ultimately euthanized in overcrowded shelters) or real interest in the solution (spaying/neutering). And that goes for America as much as for other countries, including my own.

I'm just hoping it was a very good day all round...
much much needed.

You do such a wonderful service to remind people of our four legged friends. I live in a town where the feral population is overwhelming, and the Humane Society has no more room. It is a sad thing we do these lovely animals. Thank you for caring. I've managed to adopt 13 feral cats and 'domesticate' them, but we've so far to go as you say. Ironically, our city council has adopted a new one is to feed feral cats. Guess I broke the law. Tough.
