670,000 dogs are euthanized every year because of the lack of homes and resources (ASPCA, 2019.) How do we decrease the number of dogs being killed? SPAY/NEUTER! Spay and Neuter or “fixing” can be done as early as 8 weeks old.
Spay & Neuter FAQ
Q: Does my dog get fat after being fixed?
A: No, fixing a dog can alter behavior, but it does not make your dog gain weight.
Q: Does neutering make my male dog less than a “man”?
A: Your male dog will always be a male dog after neuter. It does not make them less male.
Q: Is it healthy to wait till spay your female dog after it has one litter?
A: No! Spaying your female pup can decrease her chances of infection in the uterus and cancer. Female dogs go into their heat (period/mensural cycle) as young as 6 months.
