Advantages to spaying/neutering pets: Spaying and neutering pets is not only a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, but altering pets increases their chances to live longer and healthier. There are medical and behavioral advantages to spaying/neutering pets. According to the American Veterinarian Medical Association (AVMA), spaying or neutering pets can dramatically reduce or eliminate the risk of developing certain types of cancers in both males and females. Additionally, altered dogs and cats are less likely to mark their territory; wander and become lost; get hit by cars while searching for mates, and are less likely to bite or become aggressive.
About World Spay Day: Since World Spay Day’s inception in 1995, it is conservatively estimated that participating organizations have spayed or neutered nearly two million animals. This year, Tuesday, February 25 is designated as World Spay Day with spay/neuter events taking place throughout the entire month.
