Spay/Neuter Awareness Month/World Spay Day

Five Great Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Pet Now

February is National Spay/Neuter Awareness Month/World Spay Day, and we want to encourage you to alter your pet. Here are five important reasons why.

  1. According to the Humane Society of the United States, between 6- 8 million pets enter U.S. animal shelters every year. Only about half are adopted, meaning the rest—mostly healthy, adoptable dogs and cats—are euthanized.
  2. Your pet will likely be healthier. Altered pets have less urge to roam, and spay/neuter reduces the risk of certain types of cancer in both dogs and cats.
  3. A better-behaved pet is often the result of spay/neuter surgery: male dogs are less prone to lifting a leg where they shouldn’t, cats are less likely to spray. Howling and fighting is usually curbed as well.
  4. Most counties offer less expensive licensing for spayed and neutered pets.
