Celebrating Spay & Neuter Awareness Month

At SPCA International, we know that sterilization is the most humane and effective method of population control. In honor of Spay & Neuter Awareness Month, we are contributing $150,000 in grants to local and international organizations to fund spay-neuter programs for stray and companion animals. From Egypt to Mexico to Cambodia, these grants will help our partners around the globe provide these essential services to animals in need and raise awareness of the importance of spaying and neutering.

Below are some of the exciting Spay & Neuter projects we are sponsoring this month: 


Sunshine Animal Refuge Agadir (Morocco): Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Release (TNVR) project to reduce overpopulation and eradicate rabies in Agadir.


Visiting Veterinarians International & Paw Patrol Cambodia (Cambodia): Spay/neuter campaign in Siem Reap to sterilize, vaccinate, and microchip 400 street dogs and cats.
