February is Spay and Neuter Month

Most people think of February as a month for romance. Unfortunately, so are cats and dogs. In order to curb the unwanted pet animal population, February has been declared Spay and Neuter Month.

If animals are fixed before the breeding season begins in early spring, there will be fewer unwanted animals in a few months’ time. Many animal shelters around the country are offering low cost or free spay and neuter procedures for pet animals and feral cats.

Check with your local shelter to see what incentives are available to help curb the unwanted cat and dog populations.
