SpayHR is part of Animal Rescue of Tidewater’s (ART) ongoing work to help animals in need. ART was established January 1999, and since its inception, has rescued/adopted out over 2,100 dogs and cats. Based on continuous calls for assistance from members of the community, ART realized that true effectiveness in helping more animals can come by reaching out to the people best situated to help them. In many cases, this help can be offered in the form of spay/neuter. The “Spay and Neuter Now” campaign was launched in spring 2010, and seeks to educate our community about the number of animals put down in the Hampton Roads (Virginia) area each year, how spay/neuter can greatly help reduce that number, and inform the community that quality low-cost spay/neuter clinics are available in several Hampton Roads cities.
