Every year, the League takes in thousands of stray animals struggling to survive without adequate food, shelter or hope. In honor of World Spay Day, please join us in sharing this simple but important message: spay/neuter saves lives and prevents the needless suffering of homeless animals on our streets and in our communities.
Preventing pet overpopulation has always been core to our mission. In addition to caring for our shelter animals’ veterinary, behavioral and physical wellbeing, each pet that enters our adoption centers is spayed or neutered before being adopted into a permanent home.
In 2012, the League performed over 6,000 spay/neuter surgeries for shelter animals, through Boston Veterinary Care, our public veterinary practice, and aboard our Spay Waggin’ which provides reduced cost spay/neuter surgeries throughout the South Shore and Cape Cod. The Spay Waggin’ has performed over 31,000 surgeries since its inception in 2000.
Please make a gift to the Animal Rescue League of Boston today to help us continue to provide this vital service to pets and their owners.
Additionally, the health benefits of spay/neuter surgery will help your pet live a longer, healthier life.
