SPAY AND NEUTER
WHAT IS THE SPAY AND NEUTER PROGRAM?
If everyone spayed and neutered their animals we wouldn’t have these staggering numbers. There wouldn’t be an explosion of puppies and kittens every Spring. Roughly three million healthy companion animals wouldn’t be put to death in shelters annually.
Spay and neuter is important for many reasons:
It stops the cycle of unwanted puppies and kittens.
Our four legged family members live longer, healthier lives.
It reduces unruly, undesirable and aggressive behavior.
80% of dogs that are hit by vehicles each year are unaltered males.
People understand this and want to do the responsible thing for their pets. Experience has shown us that the reason people don’t spay and neuter their pets is that they can’t afford to…not because they don’t want to. We feel that if someone cares enough to make the phone call asking for help with their animal we have a moral obligation to help if we can. Our Spay / Neuter Program for cats is a huge factor in reducing the numbers of unwanted cat litters in our community.
Homelessness is not just a human condition.
