Spay & Neuter

Spay Neuter is serious business.

Arm The Animals states, “each year, 1.2 million dogs are euthanized, with approximately 40% of whom are Pit Bulls.” About 75% of municipal shelters euthanize pit bulls immediately upon intake,” meaning that these dogs weren’t even granted the opportunity to find a forever family. 

Spay & Neuter for pets is one of the most important actions any of us can take to prevent animal suffering, cruelty, and neglect.​

​You can feel good knowing you are doing your part to help combat pet overpopulation, rescue and shelter overload, and homeless animals. It is one of the most responsible things pet owners can do. This is probably the number one reason to have your pets altered. There are millions of pets that are euthanized each year because there are not enough homes. There are city shelters that euthanize upon intake or barely give dogs a few days to find a home. This needs to change and you can be a part of that change simply by spay and neutering your animals. 

We focus primarily on Pit Bulls, BUT the reality is all domestic animals are at risk when they become homeless and enter a shelter situation.

Increase Life Span 3-5 Years

Benefits of Spay & Neuter

Millions of pets are euthanized each year due to a lack of resources and homes to care for them. By spaying or neutering, you can give your pet a happier, healthier future and help reduce the number of animals that end up in shelters, on the streets, or worse.

​If you cannot find a resource near you, your local animal shelter or rescue organization is a good place to find information about low-cost spay and neuter programs in your area. Pet stores and farmers co-ops are also good places of information.

For Their Health

Altering your dog takes serious medical conditions out of the equation. For females it prevents Pyometra, Pyometra is a uterine infection that is deadly and, needs expensive, emergency surgery when it does occur. Spaying also prevents breast tumors, which most times are malignant or cancerous in about 50% of dogs. Pets that are spay / neutered live longer happier lives.

  • For males, it prevents testicular cancers and some prostate problems.
  • For females, risk of mammary gland tumors, ovarian and/or uterine cancer is reduced or eliminated.
  • They are less likely to roam in search of a mate, which makes them less at risk to try escaping your property.
  • May help with aggression (a higher percentage of male dogs that have bitten, are unneutered males)
  • They bond easier, are more affectionate and, more attentive to their owners.
  • Females no longer go into heat, so it avoids the mess, the noise, and unwanted male dogs coming around
  • Males are less likely to mark inside the home ​​​ ​
  • No ACCIDENTAL litters – Pit Bulls can have large litters of 10 – 12 puppies. Puppies are cute, but what is not cute is irresponsible people who adopt puppies, because they are very cute, and then do not take into consideration that they will become adult dogs, but do not invest their time in their newly adopted dog for training and socialization, then end up relinquishing them to a shelter. The majority of dogs relinquished to shelters are between the ages of 7 months to 1 year old. Puppies’ initial care is expensive, imagine the vet bill for 12 puppies! and then finding responsible homes that will keep them for the rest of their lives so that they don’t end up in a shelter euthanized, is an extremely difficult ta

Most rescues and shelters today have the dogs altered before sending them home or send them home with spay/neuter certificates. Still, many shelters do not. It would be in their best interest and would be the most responsible thing for them to do, but for some city shelters, it’s just not included in their budget.

It should be a top priority for adopters. There are many places that help fund, give certificates and help pay for spay and neuter. There is no excuse for any owner to not have their dog fixed.
