Spaying and Neutering are the only ways to control any community's population of unwanted and homeless animals.
Each day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S., and each day in the U.S. 70,000 puppies and kittens are born. At this rate, there will never be enough homes for the animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, puppies and kittens face starvation, abuse and euthanization as ways of animal control.
An unspayed female cat, her mate and all of their kittens, if none are altered, add up to:
1 year = 16
2 years = 126
3 years = 512
6 years = 67,000
Spaying and Neutering are steps that all responsible pet owners should take for the good of their pets overall health and welfare. Pet Partners of the Tir-State Berkshire has referrals to where one can more affordably spay or neuter their pets, for those who would not otherwise be able to afford those procedures.
