Why Should I Spay or Neuter My Dog?

Who knows? Maybe someone’s dog got out just one time and ended up causing an unwanted litter of puppies. Or maybe someone thought it would be fun to have a litter of puppies. Maybe someone thought it would be educational to teach their children how puppies are born and raised.

But then it ALL went wrong! After the puppies came, all efforts to find enough good homes failed. So the puppies were packed up in a box and taken to a nearby shelter. Surely the shelter could find them all a place to live! Right?

Or even worse, Find homes or drive them to the shelter was just too much work. So with no one watching they were dumped on a street corner or on a gravel road in the country.

Having your dog spayed or neutered is the only permanent, 100-percent effective method of birth control for dogs. This is the only proven way to reduce the huge numbers of animals who are put to death prematurely.


There are also some great health reasons to spay or neuter your pet.

In male dogs the removal of the testicles will prevents testicular cancer. It will also keep your male from destructive behavior and howling when an “in season” female is around.

In female dogs, there is less chance of uterine cancer and breast cancer. Not going into “heat” means your female will not suffer incessant crying or nervous behavior.

It also means that you won’t have unwanted male dogs around your house trying to mate.

In both males and females, altered dogs are less likely to bite. They are generally more calm and even-tempered.
