Why you should Spay and Neuter Your Pets

Songbirds beware the feral cat

If you’re a pet lover, what do you do about ‘fixing’ your pets?

Spaying or neutering your pets is a large decision to make. We feel that spaying or neutering your pets is the best decision for you, your pets, and animal shelters. Spaying or neutering pets allows you to have a healthier pet. Fixed pets have lower rates of cancer, as well as for female pets, the elimination of becoming pregnant.

Speaking of becoming pregnant, animal shelters are already overcrowded. There are thousands, if not millions, of pets euthanized each year because a shelter cannot afford to keep them. Even with shelters, there are more than 60 million feral cats in the United States. These feral cats have reduced an already weak songbird population even more.

If you get a new pet and it hasn’t been spayed or neutered, go do it.
