Each year in Silicon Valley thousands of puppies, kittens, dogs and cats are put to death because there are not enough homes for all of them.
Besides saving lives, there are many other positive reasons to spay or neuter your pet. Did you know "fixing" your pet can do the following:
- Eliminates the urge to roam. Your pet will be calmer and more content.
- Reduces spraying, mounting, fighting, barking, pacing, marking and biting.
- Altered animals have twice the average life expectancy of unaltered ones.
- Spaying and neutering reduces pets risk of reproductive cancers.
In 6 years, one female dog and her offspring can be the source of 67,000 puppies!
In 7 years, one female cat and her young can produce 420,000 kittens!
