Each year an estimated 4 to 6 million unwanted dogs and cats are killed in shelters. There simply aren't enough good homes for them all. Dogs and cats that are left unspayed or unneutered continue to produce. Females at five months old start having two to four litters a year. Males at seven months can start roaming, fighting and mating, causing many litters per year. One dog or cat having two litters a year with just two pups or kittens surviving to reproduce can create 6,561 offspring in only four years. There just aren't enough homes to adopt all of these animals. Preventing their birth by having your pet spayed or neutered is the only solution. It's simple, humane and cost-effective.
