Did you know? Each day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. and each day 70,000 puppies and kitties are born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all the animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, kittens and puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. What can you do to stop the suffering? Spay and Neuter your pets!
Not only will spaying and neutering reduce the number of unwanted pets, there are many health benefits:
- Spaying females prior to their first heat cycle nearly eliminates the risk of breast cancer and totally prevents uterine infections and uterine cancer.
- Neutering males prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems.
There are many low-cost spay/neuter clinics in the Kansas City area. Click here for a list!
