Spaying or neutering pets prevents accidental litters, resulting in fewer homeless animals in shelters. It’s the single most impactful thing you can do to help homeless pets in our community.
Spaying and neutering pets also provides health and behavioral benefits for your pets, including:
– Increases in life expectancy.
– Decreases the likelihood of certain types of cancer.
– May reduce undesirable behaviors, like marking territory.
– Saves money on future veterinary bills by eliminating the possibility of future infections.
February is National Spay/Neuter Awareness Month, and it’s the perfect time to limit the chance of an unexpected litter of cats or dogs.
