Spay/neuter advocates ask Google to help their cause

Animal advocates have launched a campaign urging Google to use its Internet power to promote sterilizing cats and dogs.

A new Facebook page, set up by volunteers in Eugene, Ore., encourages members of the public to ask Google to create a “doodle” for the 20th anniversary of World Spay Day on Feb. 25, 2014.

According to Google's website, doodles are “the fun, surprising and sometimes spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries and the lives of famous artists, pioneers and scientists.” The search-engine giant says it has created more than 1,000 doodles over the years.

The public can express its support for the Doodle for Spay Day campaign by e-mailing or tweeting @GoogleDoodles.

Google says it “receives hundreds of requests every day, so we, unfortunately, can't respond to everyone. But rest assured that we're reading them.”

World Spay Day is “presented” by the Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International. According to the event’s website, “World Spay Day shines a spotlight on spay/neuter as a proven means of saving the lives of companion animals, feral cats and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in a shelter or killed on the street.”
