…all pet lovers! February 26th, 2019, marks World Spay Day. The annually recognized effort was created by the Doris Day Animal League to provide readily available spay and neutering services. How does sterilizing your furry friends benefit the long-term health of your pet? So many ways! Here are just a few…
Spayed female pets have a longer healthier life span.
Neutured male pets have less risk of getting testicular cancer.
Spayed female pets won't go through heat every month.
Neutered male pets typically won’t wander away from home.
Spaying or Neutering won’t cause weight gain.
Sterilization is far less expensive than caring for an unplanned litter.
Fewer strays will be euthanized if there is less overpopulation.
…Spay Day's mission is combating the overpopulation of animals in shelters which means more can be placed in loving homes. Thinking about adopting a furry forever friend?
