Spay & Neuter

Spaying or neutering is one of the greatest gifts you can provide your pet, your family, and your community. These routine medical procedures help control pet overpopulation and may also prevent medical and behavioral problems from developing, allowing your pet to lead a longer, healthier and happier life.

No More Homeless Pets

4-6 million dogs and cats are euthanized yearly because they are not wanted. Having your pet spayed or neutered frees up homes for homeless pets that are already born.

Healthier and Safer Pets

If spayed before first heat cycle, females have less than 10% chance of getting mammary cancer. Also spaying eliminates risk of ovarian and uterine cancer, uterine infection, and unwanted pregnancies. Neutering eliminates the risk of testicular cancer, reduces the rate of prostate disease, and if done early enough reduces marking and aggressive behavior. Intact males are more likely to try to escape backyards to find mates and may end up getting into fights, lost, hit by a car, or in some cases shot.
