Help fight animal homelessness.

Spaying and neutering are routine, affordable veterinary surgeries that help pets live longer, healthier lives. This surgical procedure is performed under general anesthesia typically when the pet is around six months of age. This not only helps prevent surprise pregnancies and unwanted sexual behaviors but also helps prevent diseases and other health problems that can arise later in life.

The decision to spay or neuter your pet is an important one. The procedure will not only benefit your pet’s health and happiness, it will also positively impact your community and your family!
