SPAY AND NEUTER
Spay and Neuter Saves Lives
The most important way to prevent overpopulation, which leads to so many cats and dogs suffering and dying, is to spay and neuter them. Sterilizations can prevent thousands of animals from being born unwanted, only to struggle to live on the streets, be abused or neglected, or end up languishing in shelters.
According to PETA – Just one unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in only six years, while just one female cat and her offspring can produce 370,000 kittens!
