Top 3 Reasons to Spay and Neuter

It helps to reduce companion animal overpopulation. Most countries have a surplus of companion animals and are
forced to euthanize or disregard their great suffering. The surplus is in the millions in the United States. Cats are
45 times as prolific, and dogs 15 times as prolific, as humans. They do not need our help to expand their numbers;
they need our help to reduce their numbers until there are good homes for them all.
Sterilization of your cat or dog will increase his/her chance of a longer and healthier life. Altering your canine
friend will increase his life an average of 1 to 3 years, felines, 3 to 5 years. Altered animals have a very low to no
risk of mammary gland tumors/cancer, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, pyometria, and uterine, ovarian and
testicular cancers.
Sterilizing your cat/dog makes him/her a better pet, reducing his/her urge to roam and decreasing the risk of
contracting diseases or getting hurt as they roam. Surveys indicate that as many as 85% of dogs hit by cars are
unaltered. Intact male cats living outside have been shown to live on average less than two years. Feline
Immunodeficiency Syndrome is spread by bites and intact cats fight a great deal more than altered cats.
