Spay & Neuter Information

Did you know?

In the United States puppies and kittens are being born at a rate of 10,000 per hour, which amounts to 240,000 a day and 87,000,000 a year.

One unsterilized animal has the potential to set off a cycle of breeding that can indirectly generate thousands of litters:

 

The Prolific Dog* The Prolific Cat*
french_bulldog_with_puppies = 67,000 dogs
*What one female dog & her offspring can produce in 6 yrs.
kitten_facing_an_older_cat = 420,000 cats
* What one female cat & her offspring can produce in in 7 yrs.

 

Spaying and neutering makes pets better, more affectionate companions,
less likely to bite or roam the neighborhood, run away, or get into fights.

Letting your pet have one-or even two-litters can cause big problems. Even if you find homes for all (or most) of the puppies or kittens, what about their puppies and kittens?

An estimated 6-8 million dogs & cats are euthanized in shelters each year. Millions more are abandoned only to suffer from illness or injury before dying.

It costs taxpayers over $2 billion each year to round up, house, euthanize & dispose of homeless animals. Spaying and neutering helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.

All animals adopted from the Humane Society are spayed/neutered at the time of adoption.
