Spay & Neuter

There are 45 cats and 15 dogs for every one person born.

America's dogs and cats are dying for you to be responsible.  Please spay and neuter - it will stop the killing!

Pet overpopulation is a growing problem.

There are many humane organizations participating in the 2001 spay and neuter discount coupon program.  The Department of Animal Regulation has a list of groups in your area.

Spay/Neuter Good News:

There are many programs in the works and it's very encouraging. Thank you Maddie's Fund for your feral program - because of you Friends for Animals is out there spaying and neutering and re-releasing so that the feral cats can live a life without bringing more unwanted animals into the world.
