Spay Or Neuter Your Pet?
Did we mention 70,000 puppies and kittens are born every day in the United States?
That’s 15 puppies and 45 kittens for every hairless biped that slides out of a birth canal.
And “multiplying like bunnies” isn’t just any old trope. We don’t need any more homeless animals than we already have.
As a bonus, spaying and neutering helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives by eliminating the possibility of uterine, ovarian, and testicular cancer, and decreasing the incidence of prostate disease.
Adopt from a no kill shelter or rescue center.
Some pet breeders have only one goal—to raise large quantities of purebred animals for profit.
They've also been pilloried for misdeeds such as overbreeding, inbreeding, poor veterinary oversight, lousy food and living conditions, overcrowding, and culling of unwanted animals.
Why buy when you can adopt one of the 70,000 puppies and kittens born every day in the United States? Love knows no pedigree.
