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.
Here are the top 10 reasons to spay/neuter:
