Save Lives. Spaying and neutering helps fight pet overpopulation.


Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.  

The burden of unwanted pets is heavy. There are countless cats and dogs reproducing more and more unwanted offspring, causing many animal shelters to reach their maximum capacity. Sadly, there aren't enough good homes for them all. Spaying or neutering will make a big impact on controlling the overpopulation of cats and dogs!


Your pet doesn't need to have a litter for your children to learn about the miracle of birth.

Letting your pet produce offspring you have no intention of keeping is not a good lesson for your children—especially when so many unwanted animals end up in shelters.
