Spay FIRST! is a global leader in preventing animal suffering due to unwanted litters.
Animal overpopulation is a global issue. At least half of dogs and cats born worldwide are unplanned and unwanted. An estimated 250 million street dogs roam in harsh environments, unloved, and without care. The average lifespan of a female street dog is under three years. Addressing overpopulation by building shelters is a costly, outdated approach that leaves millions of animals out in the cold. Spay FIRST! provides innovative spay/neuter solutions that reach the animals and communities that need it the most.
Spay FIRST! partners with government agencies and non-governmental organizations to find science-based solutions to the animal overpopulation crisis. Non-surgical fertility control holds the key to stopping the suffering before it begins. We lead the charge in finding cost effective solutions that are on an approval track that will reach economically challenged communities first.
"When children in poverty witness cruelty as the norm, they learn to accept tragedy as inevitable. The status quo of neglect, cruelty, and eradication is socially, economically, and morally corrosive to our global community. SpayFIRST! is here to address that challenge head on. "
