There is nothing more pitiful than a starving, flea-infested, abandoned (or even abused) cat or dog.
If you haven't yet watched the Pixar animation short "Kitbull" do click the link to watch it for free on YouTube. It's the story of a stray kitten and abused pit bull dog finding friendship for the first time in their sad and lonely lives.
The simplest way to prevent needless cat and dog deaths by starvation, disease and euthanasia is to spay or neuter pets and feral animals.
It's even more important to spay and neuter feral or stray cats and dogs to prevent further overpopulation.

Thanks for reading "Save Lives, National Spay Day is February 26".
