Facts about dogs…

  • Nationally, 80% of the dogs hit by cars are unaltered males searching for mates.
  • One unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in only 6 years.
  • As many as 25% of dogs entering shelters each year are purebreds.

 

Facts about cats…

  • A female cat can begin breeding as young as 4 months old.
  • A female cat can become pregnant again 3 weeks into nursing a litter of kittens.
  • One cat and her offspring can produce over 2 million cats in 8 years.

 

There are just not enough homes to adopt them all.

Sterilization reduces a pet’s urge to roam, decreasing the risk of contracting diseases or being injured in a fight or by a vehicle. Sterilization also reduces the risks of some reproductive cancers in pets. It is believed sterilization can increase a dog’s life by one to three years and a cat’s life by three to five years.
