PetsMart Charities and ASPCA has compiled a list of low or no cost spay/neuter options.  Plug in your zip code and see the options near your home.

The need for spaying and neutering of cats and dogs, preferably juvenile spaying of kitties and puppies, is crucial to our cause.

Shelters are full of unwanted litters.  Unspayed puppies and kitties reach sexual maturity around six months.  Dogs usually produce two litters per year.  Cats will continue to cycle in heat until they become pregnant and can easily produce three to four litters per year.

There are a lot of behavioral benefits for the pet parents and health benefits to the animal.

If you think your children need to experience the miracle of birth, contact your local rescue and volunteer to foster a pregnant dog or cat.  You will be saving many lives!
