Vote for Saving Shelter Pets in the Spay Day 2010 Contest!

Saving Shelter Pets is participating in Spay Day 2010, sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States! The HSUS and Humane Society International are hosting a pet photo contest to raise money to fund spay/neuter surgeries across the US and abroad.

From the official Spay Day site:

"What is Spay Day?
Spay Day is The Humane Society of the United States' and Humane Society International's annual event to inspire people to save animals' lives by spaying or neutering pets and feral cats. Spay Day officially takes place on the last Tuesday of February—but events will be running all through the month! The 16th annual Spay Day will be Feb. 23, 2010.


To support Spay Day, The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International host the Spay Day Online Pet Photo Contest, presented by VISA and Zazzle—a great opportunity to celebrate our pets, raise funds for spaying and neutering, and win great prizes!

Entering the contest is easy and free—simply upload a digital photo of your pet and tell us a little about him or her. You can also enter as a memorial tribute to a pet who is no longer with us.

Enter your pet in the contest and select "Saving Shelter Pets" (listed under Indiana, South Bend) as your charity, to raise funds for our spay/neuter clinic to be held later this month. Or, vote for pets already in the contest that are supporting Saving Shelter Pets! Simply click on this link to view the entries supporting SSP. Every vote is only $1 (with a minimum $5 donation, which equals 5 votes), and 100% of your vote helps to provide desperately needed spay/neuter surgeries to help stop pet overpopulation at its source!

Voting ends March 4th, so vote today!

About Saving Shelter Pets:
Saving Shelter Pets (SSP) strives to eliminate euthanasia as a method of population control for homeless companion animals, by providing no-kill alternative solutions and pro-actively addressing the problem of pet overpopulation.

SSP is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization with supporters nationwide. Please see our FAQs for more information.

NOTE: The animals pictured in this or any other message are NOT available for adoption. We do not have the resources to properly screen adoptive homes. We send our dogs and cats to pre-approved no-kill rescues in the Northeast, and these rescues will then adopt them into wonderful forever homes.
