In regards to overpopulation, there are many dogs and cats that are homeless or euthanized at shelters because there are no owners that will take them. Statistics show that there are approximately 1.5 million animals that are euthanized annually in shelters across the U.S. due to over crowding and lack of adoptive families.
By getting your pets altered not only do you help with overpopulation, but your pet is less likely to roam away from home. Pets that roam are more likely to get hit by cars causing injury or even death, picked up and taken to the local shelters or homeless on the streets never to find their way home.
With statistics indicating that nearly 4 million pets in the United States are put down annually, we believe spaying and neutering animals is a productive initiative. In providing these services, we hope to prolong pets’ lives and help the community in preventing pet overpopulation.
