Spay/neuter is a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, ensuring that every pet has a family to love them. Consider the fact that in six short years, one female dog and her offspring can give birth to 67,000 puppies. In seven years, one cat and her young can produce 420,000 kittens. In towns and cities that have implemented spay/neuter programs, the Humane Society of the United States has seen the number of companion animals who had to be euthanized decline by 30 to 60 percent—even in those communities where human populations have been steadily increasing.
Spay/Neuter prevents testicular tumors, uterine cancer and uterine infections.
Spay/Neuter reduces or ends undesirable behaviors but does not change an animal’s basic personality.
Neutered males are much less likely to fight, roam, yowl, or spray urine to mark their territory.
Spaying females stops them from going into heat and can make them less anxious.
Spay/Neuter reduces nuisance complaints to Animal Control and saves taxpayer money.
THIS CLINIC IS NOT A MONEY MAKING VENTURE. We are interested in helping to reduce the homeless pet population and in providing assistance to the members of our community who are responsible pet guardians.
