All proceeds support the Forsyth Spay Day fund providing vouchers to assist low income households
with the cost of altering their pets.
In recognition of SPAY DAY local private and public organizations have formed a partnership, and
combined resources, to reduce pet overpopulation in Forsyth County by providing spay/neuter
vouchers to very low-income residents of Forsyth County.
Each year Forsyth County Animal Control shelters over 8,000 animals. Only about 2,300 will be
recovered by their owners, or find new homes. Approximately 3,000 of these dogs and cats are
turned over to the shelter by their owners and one third will be a puppy or kitten. The leading animal
welfare organizations in the nation have determined that spaying and neutering is a fundamental
element of responsible pet ownership and the key to reducing the number of unwanted pets. This
voucher program is a great opportunity to save some money and make a difference!
This year, the Spay Day event was held on Saturday February 28, 2015 at various
locations throughout Forsyth County. In order to qualify, pet owners must be on government
assistance and a resident of Forsyth County. Proof of income, proof of residency, and cash is required
to qualify. The vouchers cost $10.
