Please don't litter - spay or neuter your critter!

Think it can't make a difference if you spay or neuter your pet? Think that your cat or dog is purebred or "has papers" that its offsprings will be of value? Thinking that "just one litter" won't hurt anyone?

Look at the pictures below and think again! And neutering your pet has also other advantages:
  • Female animals on heat attract howling males, more sleep, less noise.
  • Intact males are more likely to roam (and get lost). 
  • Less territorial marking :)
  • Neutering reduces dominance and aggression.
  • Neutering reduces the risk of prostate disorders and other disease.
  • You save animals from being euthanized due to full shelters. 
There's a right time and a wrong time to have the surgery done. Do not neuter too early, your animal needs its reproductive hormones help to develop its bones and joints properly.
