In every community across the nation there are homeless animals suffering. In the U.S. there are an estimated six to eight million homeless animals entering animal shelters every year. Tragically, many of these animals are euthanized.

Taking the step to spay or neuter is one of the most important steps an animal owner can take. By spaying and neutering, unwanted and unloved animals are kept off the street and from unnecessary torment. In addition, shelters are able to reduce the number of animals they euthanize each week and tax dollars are saved by reducing the care and euthanasia of homeless animals.

Contact your veterinarian for more information on spaying or neutering or visit the ASPCA.
