Pet Calendar: World Spay Day
The last Tuesday of February has been designated World Spay Day. In 2017, World Spay Day is February 28. February is also designated as Spay/Neuter Awareness Month.
No organization believes more deeply in the need for spaying and neutering of our pets than Lucy Pet Foundation and Lucy Pet products’ founder Joey Herrick, and Dr. Karen Halligan, the foundation’s Chief Veterinary Officer. They both appeared on Hallmark Channel’s National Home and Family Show recently to promote World Spay Day; the day shines a light on the power of affordable and accessible spayed neuter to save the lives of companion animals.

Joey said, “This is a very special day for us because that is what the Lucy Pet Foundation is all about. We operate mobile clinics that provide low or no-cost spay and neuter services across Southern California and our mission is to reduce pet over population and the euthanasia of over 80,000 cats and dogs per week in the United States.”
According to Doc Halligan, “dogs who are spayed and neutered live 40 percent longer and live happier healthier lives.”
On Home and Family Herrick and Dr. Halligan discussed the importance of World Spay Day and took viewers on a tour of the Lucy Pet Foundation’s state-of-the-art mobile clinic. These rolling operating rooms can provide spay and neuter services as well as low cost vaccines, licensing, deworming, microchipping and other essential medical services.
In conjunction with World Spay Day Lucy Pet Foundation will be offering its low cost vaccine and spay and neuter services to Los Angeles residents and their pets on Feb. 28 at the Superior Grocery Store located at 10211 S. Avalon Blvd., Los Angeles CA. Residents wishing to avail themselves of these services can call 1-855-499-5829 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for surgery.
Positively Woof recently spoke with and featured actress, Carolyn Hennesy when she spent time on the Lucy Pet spay and neuter bus.
