Spaying & Neutering Info

WHY YOU SHOULD SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR PET

Happier Healthier Lives!!

Spaying and neutering are vitally important in helping reduce pet overpopulation. Millions of animals,end up homeless. 5 to 7 million lost or unwanted dogs and cats enter animal shelters every year. Only 10% of animals received at shelters are spayed or neutered, yet the cost to alter a pet is less that the cost of raising a single puppy or kitten for a year.
