WeSNiP — the Whatcom Education, Spay and Neuter Impact Program — is celebrating its 15,000th spay/neuter surgery with Party for the Paws on November 13 at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal, located at 355 Harris Ave.
Party for the Paws begins at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, November 13 and features music, dancing, games, prizes and a no-host bar. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online at www.wesnip.org or by sending email to email@example.com.
WeSNiP provides high-quality spay and neuter services to low-income pet owners. The 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization facilitated a record of 170 surgeries in October, surpassing the milestone of 15,000 surgeries since it was founded in 2008.
“In addition to creating healthier and more desirable pets, WeSNiP services have seriously impacted the number of pets entering the shelter stream,” said Audrey Seaholm, WeSNiP’s executive director. “When WeSNiP was launched in 2008, the Whatcom Humane Society took in 4,737 cats and dogs. With WeSNiP’s program in our community, the intake total declined by 36 percent to 3,025 in 2014.”
