Why Spay/Neuter

“The health of an animal is always improved by neutering as well as behavior modification. For example, when they are first born, all dogs squat when eliminating, so  if a male is neutered early enough he will never mark.  Females will most likely not have breast cancer if fixed before their first heat. Personally, I think dogs and cats behave younger, longer, once altered. ” (Vera Lauren)

Stopping pet overpopulation starts with you!

Spaying or neutering your pet is an important decision for pet owners. As animal lovers who value our pets, it is important to understand the impact of this decision.

In every community, in every state, there are homeless animals. In the U.S. as a whole, there are an estimated 6-8 million homeless animals entering animal shelters every year. About half of these animals are adopted, and tragically, the other half are euthanized. These are healthy, sweet pets who would have made great companions.

The number of homeless animals varies by state in some states there are as many as 300,000 homeless animals euthanized in animal shelters every year. These are not the offspring of homeless “street” animals these are the puppies and kittens of cherished family pets and even purebreds.
