Why is it important to spay/neuter your pet?
The suffering and sorrow associated with pet overpopulation is overwhelming. Just in Hillsborough County alone over 13,000 animals were euthanized in 2011. HSTB believes the most effective way to reduce pet overpopulation is to reduce the number of unwanted litters being born.
Spaying your female pet:
A spayed female is a more pleasant pet to live with. There are no furniture stains and soils resulting from her heat cycle and no annoying advances or serenades from neighborhood males. What’s more, her chances of leading a healthy, happy life are improved, including a reduced susceptibility to mammary cancer and uterine infections.
Neutering your male pet:
Neutering discourages “wandering” which all too often leads to fights, car accidents and the spread of disease. It eliminates foul smelling sprays as your pet stakes out his territory in and around your home. It also reduces male tendencies toward overly aggressive behavior and reduces the likelihood of his developing prostate infections and cancer.
Sterilization & Your Pet’s Disposition
Pets who have been spayed or neutered are not only healthier, they are easier to get along with – both for people and other animals. They tend to be more gentle and affectionate. Neutered pets are not inclined to be inactive or overweight, but as with all pets, they should not be overfed.
Homeless animals everywhere are grateful for your decision to help reduce pet overpopulation by having your pet spayed/neutered!

Humane Society of Tampa Bay’s Spay/Neuter Clinic:
Our Spay/Neuter Clinic opened for the community in Spring 2000. Through December 2012, more than 90,000 dogs and cats have been sterilized. Our goal is to offer high quality, high volume sterilizations at low cost to members of the community. We are able to do this through the modest fees we charge and the generosity of the many HSTB donors who support this program. Your pet’s safety is our #1 concern. We will not perform surgery on any pet if our veterinarians think there could be a problem and we never re-use syringes or needles.

On December 8, 2007 the HSTB Mobile Adoption Center (MAC) came to Cheval. It was there that we met Bailey and fell in love instantly.
Since her adoption she has gained much confidence. She is a beautiful girl inside and out bringing much joy to family and friends. She has learned how to drive her golf cart, been grand marshall for a Humane Society of Tampa Bay fundraiser where she also donated the $3,000 prize money she won from a national photo contest by Wheel of Fortune, she has met her sweetheart, Leo, and has become a socialite hosting gatherings of doggie friends. She’s the sweetest, most giving dog and we feel blessed that Bailey has come into our lives. We are very grateful for the HSTB and all they do to help animals and for bringing Bailey to our neighborhood.
