Overpopulation is a very real problem that leads to unnecessary suffering and deaths for millions
Every year, shelter take in 6.5 million unwanted pets: 3.3 million dogs and 3.2 million cats. 1.5 million die because no-kill rescues are full, and there aren’t enough responsible adopters available to save them from the kill lists at other shelters.
When you spay or neuter your dog, you help end the cycle of overpopulation, unwanted dogs, overflowing shelters, and euthanization of perfectly healthy animals.
Spay/Neuter is also the healthy choice for your dog
- Reduces instances of uterine infections, breast tumors in females
- Reduces testicular cancer as well as some prostate conditions in males.
- Female dogs no longer go into heat.
- Male dogs tend to behave better.
- Male dogs tend roam less and are less likely to get lost, injured, or hit by a car.
