I believe in spaying and neutering pets. To most people, thistopic doesn’t cross their minds as something important. The fact isevery pet owner should listen. The most important thing to know aboutspaying and neutering is that it saves lives. In every community in theU.S., there are animals sitting in shelters waiting for homes.

It will also cost less than the vet billsincurred from your male running after the female in heat up the road andgetting injured by a car. There are programs for assistance for thosewho cannot afford to get the procedure done. There are many otherexcuses out there –most being absolutely false, so before you startbelieving things,…
