Why Spay & Neuter?
Allowing your pets to breed contributes to the pet overpopulation problem in Pierce and King Counties. ONE female cat and her offspring can produce over 400,000 unwanted kittens in seven years! ONE female dog and her offspring can produce 65,000 unwanted puppies in seven years!
Spaying and neutering your pet is a part of being a responsible owner. Having your pet spayed or neutered will not make it fat, lazy, or less protective. Having your pet sterilized benefits you, your pet, and the community. Most importantly, spaying or neutering your pet reduces the number of homeless animals unnecessarily killed in our local communities.
What are the benefits?
Your pet will not produce litters of unwanted puppies or kittens
Your pet is less likely to roam or run away
Your pet is less likely to bite and show aggression
Your pet is less likely to fight with other animals
Your pet will be more calm, affectionate and overall healthy
Your pet will be less likely to spray or mark their territory
