BAKERSFIELD, CA. — World Spay Day is an annual day of awareness toward spaying and neutering your pet. The day falls on the last Tuesday of every February.

"Today we have over 100 cat spay appointments," says Nick Cullen, Kern County Animal Services Director.

The shelter is accepting walk-in appointments from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today.
