Because it is the right thing to do. Spaying and neutering owned pets and stray animals helps to control pet overpopulation, which results in millions of healthy but unwanted dogs and cats to be euthanized world wide each year.

IMPACT OF SPAY/NEUTER
CONTROL PET OVERPOPULATION
Each year, millions of unwanted cats and dogs are euthanized or suffer on the streets. This number is due to unplanned litters that could be prevented by spaying and neutering.
Spaying your female pet will allow her to live a longer, healthier life by preventing uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50% of dogs and 90% of cats. Neutering male pets prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems.
IT'S GOOD FOR THE COMMUNITY
Stray animals pose a threat to public health by spreading life-threatening diseases such as rabies. Spaying and neutering impacts the number of unwanted animals roaming the streets.
Your spayed female won’t go into heat, avoiding yowling and frequent urinating during the breeding season. A neutered male is less likely to feel the need to mark territory by spraying urine, mounting other dogs, people and objects and some aggression issues may be avoided by early neutering.
