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 animals a better chance at life.
Health Benefits: Spayed and Neutered pets have longer life spans than their un-neutered counterparts and are at a reduced risk for many cancers.
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, barking and straying in search of a mate.
