Spaying or neutering cats and dogs has become a relatively universal practice. Shelter animals are “fixed” before they hit the adoption floor, and most breeder contracts stipulate that pets must be spayed or neutered by a certain age. And yet, many animals do not undergo this important surgical procedure. There are many benefits of spaying or neutering your pet that goes far beyond reducing unwanted litters and behavioral changes. Remarkably, surgical sterilization has the potential to positively impact the community and so much more.
