Pet Overpopulation

Why are there so many unwanted pets?

If one unspayed female cat has two litters every year, even if only two or three kittens survive from each litter, she and her offspring can produce over 11,000 cats after just five years! And after nine years, their family can total over 11 MILLION cats and kittens!

Why should you spay or neuter YOUR pets?*

Spaying your female pets means:

  • No heat cycles, therefore males will not be attracted
  • Less desire to roam
  • Risk of mammary gland tumors, ovarian and/or uterine cancer is reduced or eliminated, especially if done before the first heat cycle
  • Reduced number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies
  • Dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives

Neutering your male pet means:

  • Reduced or eliminated risk of spraying and marking
  • Less desire to roam, therefore less likely to be injured in fights or auto accidents
  • Risk of testicular cancer is eliminated, and decreased incidence of prostate disease
  • Reduced number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies
  • Decreased aggressive behavior, including dog bites
  • Dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives
