Frequently Asked Questions

 


reasons to spay and neuter your pets

When you spay or neuter your pet, you become an important part of the solution to animal overpopulation and homelessness. Spaying or neutering your pet provides many other benefits as well:

  • Your pet will be more content and less likely to roam, bite, scratch, fight, or mark territory
  • Your pet, male or female, will be healthier and live longer. When your pet is "fixed" there is less chance it will develop uterine, mammary, or testicular cancer

If I neuter my male dog will he become "less manly?"
No. Male dogs may become calmer and may stop humping. But he will still be the "guy" he used to be.

Will my pets become fat and lazy if I have them "fixed?"
No. Animals become overweight because of lack of exercise and improper diet. Make sure your animal stays active and do not overfeed your pet.

If my pets can't have babies will my children miss seeing the "miracle of life?"
No. There are wonderful books and DVDs which show the birth of baby animals. By spaying and neutering your pets you can teach your children the joy of companion animals living in loving homes. You might also consider becoming a foster home for kittens or puppies needing temporary homes while awaiting adoption from Rescue Village.
