Saving Lives...365!

The message of World Spay Day is relevant all year long. HAWS saves lives through spaying and neutering all year long, not just on 1 day.

Yesterday, February 26, was the annual observance of World Spay Day. For HAWS, saving lives through spay and neuter surgeries isn’t just limited to 1 day, but a year-round effort!

World Spay Day was created to raise awareness of the effects of spaying and
neutering companion pets. Pet overpopulation is a problem – worldwide and in
Waukesha County. But, spay and neuter surgeries can help control pet
overpopulation and put an end to needless euthanasia.

HAWS’ Spay-Neuter Initiative Program (SNIP) clinic not only performs surgeries on HAWS’ shelter animals, but also gives assistance to area rescue groups and financially struggling Waukesha county residents. We again observed World Spay Day by offering free surgeries to the pets of eligible owners of cats, kittens, Pit
Bulls and pit mixes during these past few weeks, but assistance is always
available to those whose pets are in need.

Our Project Guardian continues to combat the outdoor cat overpopulation issue in rural and newly-developed areas of Waukesha County. Free spays and neuters are offered, along with basic vaccinations to those who are guardians of outdoor cat populations. Our staff can even give some helpful hints for proper trapping and release of these cats!

If you have any questions regarding our SNIP clinic or spaying or neutering
your pet, please call us at 262-542-8851, x109, or email snip@hawspets.org.
