Why You Should Spay/Neuter Your Pet
According to the Humane Society of the United States, an estimated six to eight million dogs and cats enter U.S. shelters each year: 50% of these animals (three to four million) are euthanized because there are not enough homes for them — that’s one every eight seconds! As tremendous as the problem of pet overpopulation is, it can be drastically improved if each of us takes just one small step: spaying/neutering our pets. Spay/neuter surgery is commonly and routinely performed every day.
Denver has a variety of low-cost veterinary options for spay/neuter. See our Community Pet Resource Guide(PDF, 5MB) for more information.
Denver Animal Protection (DAP) provides care to more than 12,000 pets each year. DAP operates Denver Animal Shelter (DAS), an open-admissions shelter that is home to more than 6,000 lost and abandoned pets each year.
