Spay and Neuter

We’re thrilled you’re considering spay/neuter for your pet! It’s a BIG myth that spay/neuter changes your pet’s personality. The opposite is true: your pet will be happier and healthier. Plus, fixing your pet will help fix the situation of shelter overcrowding. Sadly, over 3.4 million animals are killed in American shelters due to overcrowding. You and your pet will also enjoy these benefits:

  1. Prevent Dog Bites – Anywhere from 72 to 90% of dog bites are by unneutered males! It’s YOUR responsibility to protect your family and the community from an unnecessary danger.
  2. Better Behavior – Neutering and spaying reduces unwanted behaviors: roaming and escaping to find a mate, mounting and humping, frequent urination to “mark” territory, and aggression.
  3. Your Dog Will Live Longer – You’ll reduce your dog’s risk of cancer. And don’t worry—your pet will recover quickly from the operation and be just as energetic and playful as ever. Plus, spaying and neutering means your dog may live 18% longer!
