Wisconsin Humane Society to Spay 122 Cats
2010 Spay Day helps low-income families
MILWAUKEE – 122 cats will be spayed today at the Wisconsin Humane Society. Unsterilized, those 122 cats could produce about 732 kittens in one year, 719,961 in five years, and a staggering 4,031,368 cats in just six years.
Local veterinarians and veterinary technicians will be donating their time and talents to spay or neuter these 122 cats on Spay Day at the Wisconsin Humane Society on February 23, 2010 through WHS’ Spay Neuter Assistance Program for low-income families.
Altering cats reduces animal overpopulation and helps prevent animal suffering. Spaying or neutering cats also has beneficial side effects, such as lowering the risk for developing certain types of cancer.
