According to the ASPCA, an estimated 6.5 million cats and dogs entered animal shelters in 2016.  Of that number, an estimated 1.5 million healthy, adoptable cats and dogs were euthanized in 2016.  The majority of animals entering shelters are strays, and it’s estimated only 10 percent are spayed or neutered.

Pet overpopulation is a huge problem.  There’s too many animals and not enough homes.  The only 100 percent effective birth control for pets is spaying and neutering.  In fact, the veterinary community acknowledges that safe, efficient, accessible sterilization programs are the best antidote to the mass euthanasia of cats and dogs resulting from pet overpopulation.

There are a number of benefits to spaying and neutering your pets.

  • Less desire to roam looking for a mate.
  • Reduces the risk of uterine infections and breast, ovarian and uterine cancer in females and prostate problems and testicular cancer in males.
  • It can help curb undesirable behavior such as spraying, marking, aggression, wailing and other dominance-related behaviors. 
  • Eliminates messy heat cycles.

In addition to the benefits to your pet, spaying/neutering is cost effective to you, the pet owner.  It is far less expensive to spay/neuter your pet than to care for a litter of puppies/kittens.
