FOR THEM:

  • Spayed and neutered dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.
  • Spaying female dogs and cats eliminate the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of breast cancer.
  • Neutering male dogs and cats reduces the incidence of prostate cancer.

FOR YOU:

  • Prevent an unwanted litter.
  • Spayed and neutered pets are better, more affectionate companions.
  • Neutered cats are less likely to spray and mark territory.
  • Spaying a female dog or cat eliminates its heat cycle, which can last twenty-one days, twice a year, in dogs, and anywhere from three to fifteen days, three or more times a year, in cats.  Females in heat often cry incessantly, show nervous behavior, and attract unwanted male animals.
  • Spayed and neutered pets are less likely to bite.  Unaltered animals often exhibit more behavior and temperament problems than those that have been spayed or neutered.

FOR THE COMMUNITY:

  • Neutered animals are less likely to roam and fight.
  • Communities spend millions of dollars to control and eliminate unwanted animals.  Irresponsible breeding contributes to the problem of dog bites and attacks.  Animal shelters are overburdened with surplus animals.
