If there's one thing that's crucial to the end of the crisis of homeless pets and the killing of healthy, adoptable animals it's spay and neuter.  Spaying is the sterilization process for a female and neutering is the sterilization process for a male.  Both procedures are extremely common and quite safe.  Any responsible pet parent will sterilize their pet before they contribute to the pet overpopulation problem.  Legitimate adoption agencies will do the same. 


Fix them or kill them is not exaggerated.  One breeding pair of cats or dogs and their offspring can produce thousands upon thousands of kittens and puppies in their lifetime.


Not only does spay/neuter prevent litters of kittens and puppies whose placement would take homes from kittens, cats, dogs and puppies who are facing euthanasia in shelters or short and miserable lives on the streets, but it also has many benefits to the cat or dog and its family.


Cats and dogs who are altered are less likely to engage in territorial or aggressive behavior, are less likely to try to get out of the house, are less likely to be hit by cars or get into fights with other animals, and are less likely to engage in inappropriate elimination behaviors.  Spaying and neutering also decreases or eliminates certain diseases and types of cancer, and increases the longevity and quality of your pet's life. 



  • Cats and kittens can be safely spayed or neutered at 2 lbs, which is usually attained at 8 - 9 weeks of age.  Click here for more information on pediatric spay/neuter.  Many veterinarians are not educated about this.

  • A female kitten can go into heat and become pregnant as early as 4 - 5 months.  Spay your cat early to avoid unwanted litters.

  • Female cats can be safely spayed at any stage of pregnancy.  The risks of spaying a pregnant cat are negligible and must be balanced against the risks of complications during labor and delivery and the lives of homeless cats and kittens.

  • Spaying your female dog or cat can literally save her life.  Pyometra is a serious condition which all unaltered female animals who go into heat are at risk of.  The only way to prevent it is to spay your cat or dog.

  • Unaltered cats are more likely to contract FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and FLV (Feline Leukemia Virus) due to fighting and mating behaviors.
