Today marks World Spay Day, and the International Fund for Animal Welfare has plenty to celebrate.

From Indonesia to Northern Canada, and from Germany to South Africa, IFAW provides veterinary care to cats and dogs around the world.

When all the medical interventions and other aid we provide are tallied up, IFAW cared for 38,793 companion animals last year.
