Alabama Spay/Neuter and The Greater Birmingham Humane Society (GBHS) teamed up to give away 113 spay/neuter surgeries on behalf of World Spay Day.
Early in the morning on February 25, 2014, future Alabama Spay/Neuter clients lined up outside the doors of GBHS on Snow Drive to sign up for a free spay/neuter surgery. Each client was checked in by service representatives, Peggy Cropp of Friends of Cats and Dogs and Laura Brinkman of Alabama Spay/Neuter. Thanks to the sponsorship of the GBHS, 77 dogs and 36 cats were able to be fixed for free.
Spay Day was created by The Doris Day Animal League (DDAL) in 1995 to promote the need for spaying and neutering as the humane solution to overpopulation among companion animals. In 2006 DDAL merged with The Humane Society of the United States and continued the tradition as World Spay Day. Events for World Spay Day are held in 41 countries, including all 50 U.S. states. It is scheduled to be on the last Tuesday of February each year.
