(Milan, IL) – The Quad City Animal Welfare Center, Rock Island County Animal Care and Control/QC Paws, and the Humane Society of Scott County have joined together to recognize National Spay Day as Operation Spay Day 2013. Pets who are spayed or neutered do not add to the heartbreaking tragedy of over population, and animal shelters are not over burdened with the unwanted animals. Spaying and neutering is also important to a pet's health.
