There are simply not enough homes for all the animals awaiting adoption from animal shelters. Responsible pet owners spay/neuter their dogs and cats to prevent unwanted pregnancy and litters.
Having your pet “spayed” (also known as “neutered” or “fixed”) is a surgical procedure to remove your pet’s reproductive organs. In the case of spaying your female cat or dog, the ovaries and uterus are removed. For your male dog or cat, the testicles are removed, also known as “castration.”
Pet owners usually notice that their cat or dog is calmer and behaves better after being spayed. Your pet should no longer have the urge to mate. It will be less likely to run away where it may normally get into fights with other animals.
