Spay and neuter your pet! In addition to saving lives, spaying and neutering can also drastically improve your pet's health and life expectancy.
The idea that pets become fat or lazy when they are spayed or neutered is a myth. Sterilized pets lead healthier, longer lives, with greatly reduced risk of breast cancer.
Statistics show that 90% of all pets relinquished pets to shelters are from low-income households. By reserving all assistance funding for only those who qualify as low income, the pet-keepers who most contribute to shelter overpopulation are the ones being assisted. These are the pet-keepers who wouldn’t otherwise be able to prioritize the spay/neuters of their pets.
