Spaying or neutering pets is the best long-term solution to pet overpopulation. It leads to a reduced number of strays in the community, which means fewer dogs in animal shelters waiting to find good homes. Not only do these surgeries help control pet overpopulation, but they also provide a variety of health and behavioral benefits.

  • Neutering male dogs prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems, reduces their desire to roam and find a mate, and can even decrease aggressive behavior.
  • Spaying female dogs reduces the likelihood of mammary tumors, which are often cancerous, as well as uterine infections. It will also keep them from going into heat.
  • Fixing your furry friend will increase its chances of a long, happy and healthy life. Studies show that spaying and neutering dogs can significantly increase their lifespan.
