Why spay and neuter?
A compassionate society knows there is a better way to solve overpopulation than needlessly euthanizing unwanted animals.
What is the surgery?
Spaying is the term used for female animals, and is the surgical removal of the ovaries and uterus. Neutering is for males, and involves the removal of the testicles. Fixing, altering or sterilizing your pet are other terms for spaying or neutering, and are very safe procedures.
Good for the Community
Unintentional breeding is the root cause of most vicious dog bites and attacks. Spaying or neutering reduces the animal\’s desire to roam, resulting in fewer traffic accidents and neighborhood complaints. Communities spend millions of dollars to control unwanted companion animals. A compassionate society knows there is a better way to solve overpopulation than needlessly euthanizing unwanted animals.
Good for your pet
Animals that are fixed make better companions because they are not motivated to wander in search of a mate. Spaying or neutering your pet can decrease the risk of diseases that are expensive to treat. Pets that are spayed or neutered have up to an 85% lower risk of certain types of cancers and other serious health complications.
