Spay and Neuter
The overpopulation of dogs and cats in Cumberland County, as in most parts of the U.S., can only be controlled by Spay and Neuter programs. We cannot build enough housing for the thousands of unwanted puppies and kittens born each year. Even if we could, long-term housing in a shelter is not a healthy life for these animals.
Spay and Neuter is good for the animal
Spayed and neutered dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives. The surgery can eliminate or reduce the incidence of a number of health problems that can be very difficult and expensive to treat. Spaying females eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer. Neutering male dogs reduces the chances of prostate cancer and other prostate disorders.
Spay and Neuter is good for the owner
Spayed and neutered pets are better, more affectionate companions. Neutered cats are much less likely to spray and mark territory. Spaying a female pet eliminates their heat cycle so they won’t cry and yowl, won't be so nervous and won’t attract male animals. Altered animals are less likely to bite and less likely to have behavior and temperament problems. Neutered males are less likely to roam the neighborhood, run away and get in to fights.
