~Spayed or neutered pets are typically better behaved, calmer, and more affectionate than those that are not altered.
~Male animals are less likely to mark their territory by urinating or spraying and less likely to run away in an attempt to find a female; no, this does not. This does not, however, mean you should leave your neutered animal outside unattended.
~Spaying an animal eliminates their heat cycle and the undesirable elements of a heat cycle such as bleeding, crying, and nervous behaviors.
~Want to take your dog to that fun dog park down the street or the daycare around the corner? Then your dog needs to be spayed or neutered as most dog parks and daycares require it.
~Every year approximately 4 million animals, the vast majority of which are medically and behaviorally adoptable, are euthanized. By spaying or neutering your pet you are directly helping to reduce this number.
~Due to the fact that it helps reduce the incidence of some of the most common types of cancers (breast, uterine, prostate, and testicular), your animal is likely to live a longer and healthier life.
~Spaying and neutering decreases the number of stray animals which results in a decrease in animal bites (to both humans and pets), car accidents, and destruction to property.
~Spayed and neutered animals get along better with each other and exhibit less aggression issues towards animals of the same gender.
