Spay & Neuter Programs

Spay/Neiter Programs

Pet overpopulation – when there’s TOO much of a good thing.

Each year, between 6-8 million dogs and cats, puppies and kittens, are turned in to animal shelters around the country. Some are lost, some are abandoned, some are unwanted, most are the result of irresponsible ownership and uncontrolled breeding.

Sadly nearly 3-4 million of those animals have to be euthanatized because there aren’t enough good homes for all of them. (statistics from The National Council on Pet Population, Study and Policy)

Help solve the problem by spaying or neutering your dog or cat.
