Spaying or neutering your pet:

  1. Prevents unwanted pregnancies and litters;
  2. Prevents uterine cancer and pyometra in females and testicular cancer in dogs, since it completely removes the reproductive organs;
  3. Prevents pets from roaming to look for a “mate;”
  4. Prevents unwanted pets from being euthanized in overcrowded shelters.
