Spay Day was a success
In honor of the 16th annual “Spay Day,” the student run Public Relations (PR) firm put on “Spay Week”, to help raise awareness about spaying and neutering pets. The events put on during “Spay Week” were quite successful! On Monday February 22, 2010, awareness was raised through tables set up on the first floor of Baker. We were able to tell people passing by about the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. Many people got a kick out of the t-shirts that were being sold with sayings such as… “I got my dog neutered cause my balls are big enough for the both of us,” and “You would neuter your boyfriend if he were having sex with everyone in the neighborhood.”
On Wednesday, February 24, 2010, members of the PR team for the Humane Society served tables at the Red Brick Sports Pub. In the three hours that we served we were able to raise $239.55 for the ACHS. We also had a table set up with t-shirts for sale and information about animal adoptions and “Spay Day.” During the event the 6 ladies that served tables wore t-shirts with a graphic of a kitten on them that said NYMPHO She just can’t help herself but you can, each year nearly 5 million healthy animals are euthanized in the U.S. Be a part of the solution, spay and neuter your pets! The t-shirts were a great conversation starter, and they were an excellent aid in helping ACHS to spread the word, and get tips!
Once again Thank you to all of you that helped to make spay week a success. Finally, as Bob Barker always says, “Reminding you to help control the pet population, have your pet spayed or neutered.”
