Why Spay and Neuter?
1+1= 420,000 <- How does that calculate?
One Female Cat + One Male Cat = 420,000 Kittens in 7 Years.
Help STOP the Multiplication by spaying or neutering your pets!
Spaying and neutering your pets is the most responsible decision an owner can make. There are so many benefits behind this surgery:
a healthier and happier pet
a major reduction in the threat of cancer
they won’t go through heat cycles
they won’t feel the need to get out of the fence and roam the neighborhood
they’ll be less likely to attack people and other pets
they'll be less inclined to mark their territory
it will increase your pet’s life expectancy
BUT MOST IMPORTANT: It will prevent the birth of unwanted companion animals which reduces the pet over-population!!
