Dog Spay & Neuter

Reproduction Rates

One unspayed female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in 6 years. Only one in ten dogs born in the U.S. will find a good home. Millions of healthy adoptable dogs are euthanized each year nationwide.

Spaying and neutering prevents the death of thousands of dogs. Spay/neuter helps reduce our dog overpopulation, which places an enormous financial burden on our tax payers and local shelters.

Spaying Saves Lives

Spaying (procedure for females) can be done at the age of 5-6 months. There are added health benefits if the procedure is performed before the dog’s first heat , which generally occurs at six months.

Spay Benefits

•Reduces the number of unwanted puppies/dogs
• Eliminates the nuisance of twice a year heat cycles
• Eliminates risk of ovarian and uterine cancer; decreases risk of mammary gland tumors
• Eliminates risk of pyometra (uterine infection) which can be fatal; recommended treatment is spaying
• Helps dogs live longer, healthier lives

Neutering 101

Neutering (procedure for males) can be done at the age of 6 months or older, depending on breed. It is best if a dog is neutered before he displays any negative male behavior.

Neuter Benefits

• Reduces the number of unwanted puppies/dogs
• Reduces aggressive behavior towards people and other dogs
• Eliminates testicular cancer; decreases chance of prostate disease
• Less desire to roam, therefore lowering the risk of being hit by a car
