Spay and Neuter is the first step in ending pet euthenasia in shelters.

Every year, an estimated four million (4,000,000) un-adopted animals are euthanized in shelters. These are healthy, lively pets that would have made the perfect companion.

Many people are surprised that most of these animals euthanized are not the offspring of stray, homeless dogs and cats - these are puppies and kittens of family pets, many even purebred (it is estimated that 25% of shelter dogs are purebreds). The only surefire way to begin the long road to ending the destruction of these animals is to fix your pet to prevent their litters from ending up in shelters.

Being a responsible pet owner means saving countless other lives. By having your dog or cat sterilized, you will do your part in preventing the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens. There is no way to guarantee what happens to your pet's offspring, no matter how sure you might be. Countless pets are surrendered to shelters every day for extremely preventable circumstances. Almost half of those pets are destroyed there.

At Animal Companion Rescue Foundation, we employ only the finest and proven veterinarians to perform spay / neuter surgeries. It is an incredibly safe procedure that leads to health benefits for your furry friend. Your pet receives only the finest care and attention, and our organization focuses on making sure the procedure is affordable as well.


Why is it important to fix your pet?

There are intrinsically important benefits to having your pet fixed. While you are also helping contribute to the end of the euthanization of shelter animals, your dog or cat will receive betterment in many aspects. By spaying and neutering, you can help give your pet a happier, healthier, longer life.

Spaying a cat eliminates the constant crying and nervous pacing of a female cat in heat. Spaying a female dog eliminates the mess associated with the heat cycle. Not only will you be helping save lives, you'll be saving your furniture and carpet too!

Neutering a male dog or cat can prevent undesirable behaviors. This includes urine marking, male aggression, humping, and other disobedient acts such as roaming. General behavior and disposition is also often noticed between the co-living of pets in a household - your pets will get along better than if they were otherwise fixed.

The health benefits are undeniable in both cats and dogs. Spaying females prior to their first heat cycle nearly eliminates the risk of breast cancer and prevents uterine infections and uterine cancer. In males, neutering completely eliminates the chance of testicular cancer, enlargement of the prostate gland, and reduces their risk for perianal tumors.

Give your pet a chance at a longer, healthier life. The fix is right in front of you.
