Affordable Pet Care and Other Pet Care Tips

Spaying and Neutering

Every year, millions of unwanted dogs and cats, including puppies and kittens, are euthanized. The good news is that pet owners can make a difference.

  • By having your dog or cat sterilized, you will do your part to prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens.

  • Spaying and neutering prevents unwanted litters, helps protect against some serious health problems, and may reduce many of the behavioral problems associated with the mating instinct.

  • Removing a female dog or cat’s ovaries eliminates heat cycles and generally reduces the unwanted behaviors that may lead to owner frustration.

  • Removing the testes from male dogs and cats reduces the breeding instinct, making them less inclined to roam and more content to stay at home.

  • The single most important thing that we can do to save cats and dogs from all the suffering and death that their overpopulation causes is to spay and neuter them.

  • Spaying and neutering are routine, affordable surgeries that can prevent thousands of animals from being born, only to suffer and struggle to survive on the streets, be abused by cruel or neglectful people, or be euthanized in animal shelters for lack of a loving home.

  • Spaying and neutering makes a big difference: Just one unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in only six years. In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce an incredible 370,000 kittens!
