Why spay/neuter your pet?
By spaying or neutering your pet, you’ll help control pet homelessness crisis, which results in millions of healthy dogs and cats being euthanized* in the United States annually simply because there aren’t enough homes.
What are some of the medical benefits?
Your female pet will live a longer, healthier life. Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases. Neutering your male pet prevents testicular cancer and prostate problems.
What are some of the behavioral benefits?
Your spayed female pet won’t go into heat.
Your male dog will be less likely to roam away from home
Your neutered male may be better behaved. Some aggression problems may be avoided by early neutering.
