Spay Day International events and information     

This year JCN is organizing only one Flier pass out day, scheduled for Sunday, March 6, 2011. We'll be meeting to pass out fliers outside Hikone JR station from 11:00am to 12:00pm, and then going on to pass out fliers from 1:30pm - 2:30pm on the second floor of JR Kusatsu station (in Shiga ken). Please contact us for more details.

Contact us if you're interested in joining us or in organizing a local flyer pass out location! Enter photos of your pet in the Humane Society Spay Day International Photo Contest, and help raise money for spay/neuter projects, when people vote for your pets.
