Be Wise and Sterilize!

Without spay and neuter initiatives, homeless animals are often euthanized, neglected or die of disease. Sterilization is critical for management of free-roaming dogs and cats and related disease control concerns.


When effectively delivered and combined with vaccinations, spay/neuter provides a humane and effective way to reduce the number of animals living on the streets, and improves the health of those remaining.


Not only is sterilization the most effective way of eliminating overpopulation, it is also a way to reduce and even prevent certain health problems. But how? A few examples are provided below.


Consult your veterinarian to learn more about the benefits of spaying or neutering your pet.
