Spay Day, USA - February 24, 2009
In shelters all across the U.S., 4 MILLION homeless pets are euthanized every year. 4 MILLION. Think about that. 4 MILLION innocent lives taken.
That number will keep increasing if we don’t act now to help alleviate pet overpopulation and the number of unwanted, abandoned, and stray animals ending up in shelters.
One of the most effective things we can do is to spay or neuter our own pets. Why? Simply put, spaying and neutering saves animals' lives.
That is why members of Etsy teams, EFA and EtsyVeg, have joined together in support of Spay Day 2009. We are offering a ‘Spay Day 1 Day Special‘ on Tuesday, February 24, in all of our Etsy shops to donate to our favorite or local animal non-profit organizations, and to bring attention to this very important animal life saving message.
Please join us in making a difference in the lives of hundreds, thousands and millions of unwanted cats, dogs, rabbits, and other companion animals born in the future. And take advantage of our specials by checking out the members shops participating below on February 24th. (starred * shops are those of EtsyVeg members)
