Jefferson SPCA Spay/Neuter Services

Why Spay and Neuter?

Reduce the overpopulation of homeless pets: Overcrowding and overpopulation is the number one contributor to pet euthanasia. By ensuring your pet cannot inadvertently reproduce, you give existing homeless animals a better chance of finding a home.


Health Benefits: Spayed and neutered pets have longer life spans than their un-neutered counterparts and are at a reduced risk for many cancers. Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Also spaying prevents heat cycles. Felines can go into heat cycles for a week every 3 weeks during breeding season. Neutering your male animals will prevent prostate issues and testicular cancer.


Save on pet care: The high cost of healthcare for illnesses associated with reproductive health are very high and the cost of licensing a pet is higher for unaltered pets. A healthy pet is a healthy wallet.


Improve behavior: Spayed and neutered pets are more docile and less likely to engage in unwanted behaviors such as fighting or barking. Male animals are less likely to stray and roam away from home once they are neutered. Un-neutered male cats and dogs are more likely to mark their territory with strong smelling urine all over your house. Female felines tend to urinate more, sometimes all over the house and yowl during heat cycles.
