How spaying/neutering reduces pet overpopulation

Companion animal overpopulation is one of the most overlooked problems today. There are approximately 3.7 million animals euthanized each year due to overcrowding numbers in shelters.

Euthanization should not be the only solution to the overpopulation problems in companion animals. Fixing this problem from the root cause is the most effective way. Sterilizing your pets to prevent unwanted reproduction is key.

By spaying or neutering your pets, it will help them live a healthy life and a longer life. It will reduce the risk of deadly reproductive system diseases, and most importantly, reduce the number of newborn fur babies.

The reduction in the number of newborn pets will give more space in stray animal shelters. The shelter will be able to rescue more abandoned pets which would lead to less euthanized pets each year as well as the reduction in the overpopulation problem.

YOU can also help reduce the number of overpopulation in companion animals by adopting a pet from shelters. If you really want to have a very specific breed of pet from a farm, make sure you buy from a reliable place and be responsible by spaying or neutering them, and taking care of them for the rest of their lives.
