Why it's important to Spay / Neuter your pets!
Every day, thousands of puppies and kittens are born due to uncontrolled breeding of pets.
Every year, 6 - 8 million dogs and cats enter shelters
3 - 4 million of these animals are euthanized every year because they are not adopted.
4.5 million incidents of dog bites to humans each year are due greatly in part of uncontrolled breeding of pets. Vicious tendencies found in some dogs can be attributed to irresponsible breeding without regard for temperament. Neutering can reduce this aggressive behavior.
Spaying or Neutering is Good for Your Pet!
Spaying and neutering helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.
Spaying and neutering can eliminate or reduce the incidence of a number of health problems that can be very difficult or expensive to treat.
Spaying eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of breast cancer, particularly when your pet is spayed before her first estrous cycle.
Neutering eliminates testicular cancer and decreases the incidence of prostate disease.
Spaying or Neutering is Good for YOU!
Spaying and neutering makes pets better, more affectionate companions
Neutering cats makes them less likely to spray and mark territory.
Spaying a dog or cat eliminates her heat cycle. Estrus lasts an average of six to 12 days, often twice a year, in dogs and an average of six to seven days, three or more times a year, in cats. Females in heat can cry incessantly, show nervous behavior, and attract unwanted male animals.
Non-sterilized animals often exhibit more behavior and temperament problems than those who have been spayed or neutered.
Spaying and neutering can make pets less likely to bite.
Neutering makes pets less likely to roam the neighborhood, run away, or get into fights.
Spaying and Neutering Are Good for the Community!
Communities spend millions of dollars to control unwanted animals.
Irresponsible breeding contributes to the problem of dog bites and attacks.
Animal shelters are overburdened with surplus animals.
Stray pets and homeless animals get into trash containers, defecate in public areas or on private lawns, and frighten or anger people who have no understanding of their misery or needs.
Some stray animals also scare away or kill birds and wildlife.
