Spay & Neuter
We see the sad reality at our shelter: there are too may cats, dogs, kittens and puppies for the number of available homes. The answer to pet overpopulation is to spay or neuter your animal.
Spaying and neutering has benefits in addition to preventing litters. Dogs and cats are less likely to get into fights, less likely to roam from your yard, are less likely to do urine marking inside the home, and will live healthier lives if you spay or neuter them.
Studies have shown that it’s safe to spay or neuter puppies and kittens that are as little as 2 pounds.
Our shelter spays or neuters all animals before they go to their new homes. To support spaying and neutering pets in the community, we charge less for licenses for sterilized dogs than for dogs that haven’t been spayed or neutered.
