Spay & Neuter
Why it is important
Every year, millions of unwanted dogs and cats, including puppies and kittens, are euthanized. The good news is that responsible pet owners can make a difference. By having your dog or cat sterilized, you will do your part to prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens. Spaying and neutering prevent unwanted litters, help protect against some serious health problems, and may reduce many of the behavioral problems associated with the mating instinct.
Cats and Dogs alike live a longer, happier life when they are spayed & neutered. Altered animals have low risk or no risk of cancers later on in life in the reproductive organs.
Sterilizing your pet decreases the desire for them to roam in search of a mate, decreasing the chances that your pet will become lost, get into fights with other animals or be hit by a car.
