Why Spay and Neuter?

● EVERY YEAR millions cats and dogs are euthanized in U.S. shelters
● MOST WOULD HAVE MADE WONDERFUL PETS. Pet overpopulation and Homelessness is the #1 reason pets are euthanized
● The effective and humane way to address the pet overpopulation and homelessness problem is to drastically limit the number of cats and dogs being born
● 80% OF PETS ARE BORN INTO HOUSEHOLDS THAT CANʼT AFFORD TO HAVE THEIR PETS ALTERED. Free and low cost spay/neuter service is the answer to “I canʼt afford it”

Benefits to Spaying or Neutering Your Pet:

● Eliminates ovarian and uterine cancer in your female dog or cat
● Eliminates testicular cancer in your male dog or cat

● Reduces the need for Animal Control intervention allowing them to provide other valuable services
● Helps improve the overall health of our communityʼs pets
● Reduces the intake of feral cats which are almost always euthanized as they are difficult to handle and re-home
