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 17th annual Spay Day will be Feb. 22, 2011.

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

There are two ways to win prizes in the contest:  the Judged Category and the Fundraisers Category.   There are LOTS of prizes to be won and there will be many winners!
