Spaying & Neutering Your Pets

You can help both homeless animals and your community by having your pets fixed. Each year in Silicon Valley thousands of puppies, kittens, dogs, and cats are put to death because there are not enough homes for them all.

Every puppy or kitten born means one less home available for orphaned shelter animals. Besides saving lives there are many other positive reasons to spay or neuter your pet. Spaying and/or neutering your pet can do the following:
  • Eliminates the urge to roam. You pet will be calmer and more content.
  • Reduces spraying, mounting, fighting, barking, pacing, marking, and biting.
  • Altered animals have twice the average life expectancy of unaltered ones.
  • Spaying and neutering reduces pet risks of reproductive cancers.
