World Spay Day 2014
As part of the international Spay Day campaign, The NOAH Center, along with local partner shelters and local veterinary clinics in Snohomish, King, Island and Skagit Counties participated in this year's World Spay Day on February 25th & 26th. NOAH was able to offer low-cost spay and neuter surgeries to individuals with pets in the community. The NOAH Center's Clinic team performed 15 dog & 72 cat spay/neuter surgeries. This annual effort helps end the suffering of unwanted and homeless animals in our community by preventing unplanned litters. Spaying and neutering is good for the community and a great way to help our furry friend’s live longer, healthier lives!
History of World Spay Day
NOAH celebrates 60,000 Spay/Neuter Surgeries!
September 7th 2013 marked a significant day in the history of The NOAH Center’s Clinic. We performed our 60,000th spay/neuter surgery and we couldn’t be more excited about it. We would like to thank Erika, Anna, Dr. Birkett and our entire clinic team for all of the hard work over these past 10 years. Without their impassioned work over these years, we wouldn’t be able to save as many lives and continue to serve our mission of stopping the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable and treatable homeless dogs and cats in Washington State.

Spay/Neuter Legislation in Washington State
The following is from www.savewashingtonpets.org. Visit their website to learn how you can help get this important legislation passed.
In Washington State, a survey of shelters revealed that over 60,000 cats and dogs were reported euthanized in Washington shelters in 2005. The number of animals actually euthanized is higher, since only one third of the survey recipients responded. Between 2001 and 2005, large shelters that consistently responded to the survey reported euthanizing between 45 and 48 percent of the animals brought to them each year. The euthanasia rate has remained at these levels for the last several years.
The Sensible Solution
Spay/Neuter. The most effective and humane way to reduce the number of animals dying in shelters is a targeted, statewide spay/neuter program.
We need spay/neuter legislation to save animals' lives. Learn more about the crisis of animal homelessness and the draft bill to help address this urgent problem. Let us know that you'll join us to get a bill passed in the 2009 legislative session.
The purpose of the bill is to provide funding to assist low-income owners of cats and dogs to obtain affordable spay/neuter surgeries, and to provide for spay/neuter surgeries on feral and free-roaming cats. The bill does not make spay/neuter surgery mandatory.
