 There are millions of pet lovers in the United States, yet sadly we are forced to kill millions of dogs and cats each year because of pet overpopulation. Of the estimated ten million animals brought to shelters each year, approximately half will not find new homes and families. The uncontrolled breeding of dogs and cats has produced more animals than there are loving homes. Consider These Facts: • In just six years one female dog and her offspring  can be the source of 67,000 puppies.  • In seven years one cat and her young can produce 420,000 kittens. • For every human born in the United States, 15 dogs and 45 cats are born. You can help end this tragedy with one small, but significant action — prevent a litter by having your companion animal sterilized. The surgery is routine, has health benefits for the animal, and should be done regardless of the sex of the animal. Often referred to as having a pet “fixed,” neutering is a simple surgery performed by a veterinarian to remove an animal’s reproductive organs. The neutering of a female is often referred to as spaying.
