Spay/Neuter Information

Resources about Spay/Neuter for Pet Owners

Spaying and Neutering your animal is the only way to help control the pet homelessness crisis, which results in millions of healthy dogs and

cats being euthanized in the U.S. each year simply because they don't have a home.

There are also medical and behavioral benefits to spaying (female pets) and neutering (male pets) your animals:

Reduce spraying & marking

Reduce roaming

Reduce aggression

Lower risk of cancers

Decrease overpopulation

Increase life span up to 3-5 years
