WHY SPAY OR NEUTER MY PET?

Many people are hesitant to spay or neuter their pets, believing that:
• their children should experience the miracle of birth by watching their pets give birth;
• pets will suffer emotionally from being neutered or spayed;
• puppies and kittens are fun to have around the house;
• there is no harm done by having a litter of kittens or puppies.

The TRUTH is that:
• Children need to learn that parenting is an important responsibility, not that it is easy, fun, and without consequences.
• Thousands of unspayed female dogs suffer and die of starvation and birth complications in a lonely pregnancy and delivery.
• Male cats and dogs that are not neutered are more likely to get injured in fights, wander onto other people’s property, and bite people.
• A litter of puppies or kittens demands a lot of time and care, and rapidly turns into 6 or more expensive dogs or cats who need homes, food, and vaccinations.
• Many puppies or kittens advertised as “Free to a Good Home” often go to research labs or dog fighters where they suffer a cruel fate.
• Thousands of puppies and kittens die of starvation, abuse and neglect because they are abandoned to fend for themselves.
• One unspayed female cat, her mate, and all of their offspring, producing 2 litters per year with less than 3 surviving kittens per litter, can result in over 11,000 kittens in just 5 years, and over 11 Million in 9 years.
