(BIRMINGHAM, AL) In conjunction with National Spay Day USA on February 24th, 2009, Birmingham's own Friends of Cats and Dogs Foundation (FCDF) is pleased to announce their third annual sponsorship of a FREE SPAY/NEUTER CLINIC!!! First year benefitted EastLake Areas, Second Year the Western sections of Birmingham.
Spay Day USA is America's first and only national day of action to promote the spaying or neutering of pets. Spay/Neuter is an essential part of good pet health care and it effectively and humanely reduces the number of animals euthanized.
FCDF's mission (for the past 18 years in Birmingham) is to stop the pet overpopulation problem in the Greater Birmingham Area.
The Friends of Cats and Dogs Foundation Free Spay/Neuter Clinic is made possible by funding from The Do Dah Day Organization. The clinic is open to residents of certain neighborhoods in Birmingham's Northern section. Doctors at The Alabama Spay Neuter Clinic and Crossroads Animal Clinic will be performing the surgeries on February 24th. Interested residents should call 789-6222 for an appointment.
Clinic is open to residents with proof of residency:
North B'ham: (Acipco-Finley, Collegeville, Fairmont, Harriman Park, Hooper City, North Birmingham)
Northside: (Central City, Druid Hills, Evergreen, Fountain Heights, Norwood)
During Spay Day USA's first 13 years, participants spayed or neutered an estimated 1,366,000 animals! When you consider that an unspayed cat can give birth to 18 kittens each year and an unspayed dog can give birth to 20 puppies each year, and that the average cost for shelters to handle each homeless animal is $176, it's clear that Spay Day USA participants have, potentially, prevented millions of surplus births and saved millions of taxpayers' dollars.
