Spaying & Neutering

There is a serious over-population of dogs and cats in our communities. As a result shelters throughout the country stay at or above capacity.

Why Do It

Healthier and Happier Pets

  • Spaying before your female pet's first heat gives the best protection against often fatal diseases such as uterine infection and breast cancer.
  • Neutering prevents testicular cancer in males.
  • Neutering male dogs helps prevent them from roaming away from home to find a mate. This prevents traffic injuries or fights with other males.
  • Don't believe the rumor. Spaying and neutering does not make your pet fat. 
  • Spayed and neutered pets are better behaved. 

Helping your community

  • Stray animals pose problems for your community by preying on wildlife, causing car accidents and frightening children. 
  • Every year millions of cats and dogs are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers come from unplanned litters that spaying and neutering can prevent.

Helping your pocketbook

  • The cost of spaying and neutering is far less than caring for a litter. And, it's much less than the cost of treatment when your pet is injured from roaming looking for a mate.
