Why spay/neuter?

Improved health and longer life: Scientific research shows that spayed and neutered pets live longer and are less likely to develop certain forms of cancer and infections.

Reduced behavioral problems: Spaying or neutering your pet can reduce undesirable behaviors such as spraying, roaming, aggression, and mounting.

By having your pet spayed or neutered, you can help reduce the number of homeless pets.  Spaying and neutering your pet is one of the greatest contributions you can make to the welfare of animals in our community.
