The importance of neutering and spaying cats and dogs

Spaying and neutering street cats and stray dogs and also pets from owners are vital to decrease and possibly put an end to overpopulation in our community.
They often end up in the shelter and face the possibility of euthanization or live a dangerous life on the streets where disease and early death is common.

Consider this:

  • One female cat and her offspring can theoretically produce 420,000 cats in seven years
  • One female dog and her offspring can theoretically produce 67,000 dogs in six years
  • Spaying and neutering will also lead to a reduced urge for pets to roam which decreases their risk for contracting diseases or getting hurt. There will be less fighting whereby the animals sometimes inflict nasty wounds to each other.
