Is your pet spayed/neutered?

February is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month and February 25, 2020 is World Spay Day.

According to Bonnie Hill, Executive Director at Spay Neuter Network, the decision to spay or neuter your pet can be the best decision you make for both your pet’s and your community’s long-term welfare.

The surgery provides important health benefits, including longer life expectancy, lower rates of certain cancers and fewer behavioral issues.

The community can benefit too. Spaying and neutering keeps stray pet populations down, which means fewer homeless pets in animal shelters. If just one male and female cat and their offspring are left to breed on their own, they can have over 2,000 cats in just five years! Spaying and neutering indoor-only pets helps prevent unwanted pregnancies, both in your home and in case of accidental escape.

Spay Neuter Network is a nonprofit offering free and low-cost spay/neuter services across the Dallas and Fort worth metro area as well as surrounding counties.
