How can you be a part? Vote in the Spay Day Pet Photo Contest!
Help groups win prizes and raise lifesaving funds for spay/neuter by voting for some of your favorite shelter/rescue adoptables. Each vote for SNAP costs just $1 (tax-deductible), with the money going to the eligible Spay Day Event Organizer of your choice to spay or neuter even more pets. Spay Day 2010 photo contest voters raised more than $253,000 for 225 U.S. event organizers, which organizers estimate will allow them to spay or neuter more than 8,500 additional animals.
Below is a link to Bella and brother Neeko who are contestants in the Spay Day Pet Photo Contest. Both were abandoned at the south shelter at 4 weeks of age. Due to their young age and lack of mommy, they were to either be euthanized or raised in foster care. They flourished in SNAP* foster and have just celebrated their 1st birthdays with their forever families. ~Vote for Neeko and Bella Here~
