Why Spay or Neuter Your Pets?
Billions of dollars are spent each year to pick up, house and eventually kill our nation's homeless animals. Every day, animal shelters face budget cuts and hiring freezes while struggling to accommodate the volume of animals coming in to their facilities.
There is an answer to the pet overpopulation crisis and that answer is aggressive, targeted, high quality, low cost spay and neuter. Only by preventing the births can we begin to prevent the deaths. Expanding shelters to allow for the increase of incoming animals has not only proven to be cost and labor intensive but also has been ineffective at addressing the problem. By more effectively allocating resources towards sterilization, savings can then be utilized to enhance behavioral rehabilitation, owner retention and adoption matching programs and increase the adoptability of pets already in the shelters. It also leaves additional funds available to expand medical treatment services for pets in need and offer assistance to families unable to afford adequate care for their family pet.
