Spay And Neuter Programs

Each day 70,000 kittens and puppies are born

Every day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. Each day 70,000 kittens and puppies are also born.

As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all the animals. As a result, every year 4 to 6 million animals are euthanized because there are no homes for them.

One of the most important things you can do to help is to spay and neuter your pet! In addition to saving lives, spaying and neutering can also drastically improve your pet’s health and life expectancy. The idea that pets become fat or lazy when they are spayed or neutered is a myth. Sterilized pets lead healthier, longer lives. Spaying a female eliminates the possibility of uterine and ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the risk of breast cancer. Neutering a male reduces the risk of both prostate enlargement and prostate cancer. Neutering also will make your pet less likely to roam, get in fights or become lost.

Below is a list of various organizations that can assist you further with the spaying or neutering of your pet.
