How to use spay in a sentence?

  1. War Relief -RRB- Fine:

    There's easily a million stray animals right now, if not two million wandering around Ukraine looking for food, and they're going to start mating, and they're in shelters that don't have protection because they don't have enough cages. You're going to have a huge problem, so we said, we need to set up mobile units to go over there and spay, neuter, vaccinate these animals. And then we thought about, and we said, ‘Well, let's work that with Microsoft and put in a chip or read their chips and try to reunite them with their owners,'.

  2. David James:

    We’ve seen a drop in pet adoption especially with COVID restrictions being lifted and more people taking up the vaccine, this could be attributed to an increase in pet populations due to people who want pets but cannot afford them or those who do not want their pets anymore and end up releasing them into shelters or rescue homes, which is why it is important to spay and neuter your pets.

  3. Meredith Montgomery:

    Something that I use in the shelters and high-volume spay-neuter facilities that I've worked in is playing music, i have used slow-paced classical music at a low volume for 'quiet hour' with shelter dogs.
