Reasons to Spay and Neuter Your Pets

“I receive many e-mails each day from different rescue groups about fur kids that need homes or they will be put to death. I wished there was some way that we could truly make people understand how important it is to spay or neuter their pets. There is nothing wrong with a dog not procreating, just as it is acceptable for a person to not procreate. Allowing animals to breed will not save them from some emotion or physical harm, as some of the old wives tales might lend themselves to believing. I would beg anyone to please, before you allow your dogs to breed, take a trip to an animal shelter and think of the homes these animals will never know. These animals will die a cold death, be it by the hands of a dog warden, on a cold steel table, in a room full of gas or even worse. These are the animals that will never know what love and happiness is. Ask yourself, “Do I want to be a partner to this?”
