Sterilizing your cat or dog will increase his/her chance of a longer and healthier life.


Altering your canine friend will increase his life an average of 1 to 3 years, felines, 3 to 5 years.


Altered animals have a very low to no risk of mammary gland tumors/cancer, perianal tumors, pyometra, and uterine, ovarian and testicular cancers.

Sterilizing your cat or dog makes him/her a better pet, reducing his/her urge to roam and decreasing the risk of contracting diseases or getting hurt as they roam.


Surveys indicate that as many as 85% of dogs hit by cars are unaltered.

Intact male cats living outside have been shown to live on average less than two years.

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) is spread by bites and intact cats fight a great deal more than altered cats.

Spay and neuter helps reduce companion animal overpopulation.


Help lower the euthanasia rate by decreasing the amount of unwanted animals.

Cats are 45 times as prolific, and dogs 15 times as prolific, as humans. They do not need our help to expand their numbers; they need our help to reduce their numbers until there are good homes for them all.
