Good for You, Your Pet, and the Community
Prevent A Litter – It’s Good for You
- Spayed and neutered pets are better, more affectionate, companions.
- Neutered cats are less likely to spray and mark territory.
- Spaying a female dog or cat eliminates its heat cycle, which can last twenty-one days, twice a year, in dogs, and anywhere from three to fifteen days, three or more times a year, in cats. Females in heat often cry incessantly, show nervous behavior, and attract unwanted male animals.
- Spayed and neutered pets are less likely to bite. Unaltered animals often exhibit more behavior and temperament problems than those that have been spayed or neutered.
Prevent a Litter – It’s Good for Your Pet
- Spayed and neutered dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.

- Neutered animals are less likely to roam and fight.
Prevent A Litter – It’s Good for the Community
