SpayAid PEI, an all-volunteer Registered Charity, is celebrating its 5th year of helping low-income Island families spay and neuter their dogs, cats, or rabbits. SpayAid and partner vet clinics have helped over 1,000 animals and their families during that time. When SpayAid began in 2007, cat intake at the Humane Society was 1,421, but had decreased over 25% to 1,059 by 2011-12. During the same period the number of cats euthanized was reduced by 54%, on target to achieve the high percentage reductions in euthanized companion animals that low cost spay neuter programs in the States have achieved over a 10 year period. Spay and neuter services from SpayAid and its sister organization, the Cat Action Team, are keys to reducing animal surrenders and suffering caused by animal abandonment and homelessness.

In order to continue this valuable service for Islanders, SpayAid PEI is launching 2 new fundraising initiatives. The first is “Pawsome Chocolates.” Chocolate lollypops and mini-candies in the form of animal paws and cat shapes will soon be available at many veterinary clinics.

The second initiative is “Sponsor a Spay” which provides any animal lover with the opportunity to reduce pet overpopulation by sponsoring the spaying and neutering of 2 or more animals per year. Any level of monthly donation would be appreciated. At $10 per month, it would only take 240 participants to fund the 30 animals that are spayed and neutered each month with SpayAid’s assistance. Participation in the program may be accomplished through automatic monthly donations from chequing accounts or via credit card.

Go to www.spayaidpei.com and click “Donate Now” to learn more or contact Jane Thomas at 658-2907. Donate prior to June 30 to have your name placed in a draw for 2 tickets donated by the Confederation Centre to the July production of The Kitchen Witches. Later, there will be draws for a fabric art piece donated by Margaret England, hand-thrown cat or frog coffee mugs donated by Candy Gallant, or a supply of homemade dog biscuits.
