You may not be aware that February is National Spay or Neuter month and has been for many years in order to save the overpopulation of animals each year. Spaying is the process of performing a “hysterectomy” on a female pet while Neutering is the procedure to castrate your male pet. During National Spay or Neuter month, or anytime throughout the year, it is important to stop pets from reproducing. So many animals are euthanized each year because of improper care and overpopulation. Speak with your local Rockford-area Humane Society or your veterinarian as listed below or one closest to your home to get further details about spaying or neutering your pet safely and inexpensively.
Besides your own veterinarian, there are some alternatives in your local area to assist in controlling overpopulation through spaying or neutering your pet such as –
- Spay USA is an organization in or near your area that will help you get your pet spayed or neutered for free or reduced costs.
- ASPCA Spay/Neuter Program will assist through their partnership with Petsmart Charities to direct you to inexpensive spay or neuter services.
- Love That Cat offers assistance to keep the cat population reduced. There is high incidence of feral cats that many times can be caught, spayed or neutered and returned to their habitat at minimal to no cost.
- Triple R Pets is working with other organizations in the area to provide a spay and neuter program for pet owners at little to no cost for the good of the animals.
There are many resources now available for the health of your pets and possible strays that keep reproducing. If you are not sure where to go, speak with your own veterinarian, with the Humane Society or the folks at Petsmart and Petco in order to get pets spayed and neutered safely and inexpensively. Stop the overpopulation of unwanted pets that are unnecessarily put down every year.
