Spay / Neuter

For those wishing to help cats & dogs from being "surplus and homeless", we've provided resources for Spay/Neuter programs  or go to  MassAnimalCoalition.org for information. Please "Prevent a Litter" and neuter your pets for the welfare of all.   Unaltered or feral cats can produce up to three litters of several kittens per year. One pair of unneutered cats, breeding exponentially, can potentially produce thousands of offspring. Even conservative estimates place the number of homeless cats in America at 40-60 million. 


   Why Male Cats should be Neutered

   A Cat's Prayer
 


You see Cute, we see Tragic; thousands of kittens and cats and puppies and dogs are destroyed every year in Massachusetts because there are just TOO MANY entering pounds & shelters . . . please have your pet fixed.  Information for low cost spay/neuter agencies are available above.

Please Have Your Pet Spayed or Neutered 

Approximately five to seven million adoptable dogs and cats enter animal shelters nationwide each year. Of those, approximately three to four million are needlessly euthanized simply due to a lack of space or resources to adequately care for them.  Overpopulation is the leading cause of unnecessary euthanasia. This is largely due to an inadequate number of spayed and neutered pets, even among those livi
ng with otherwise responsible pet parents. Experts estimate that half of all puppies and three-quarters of all kittens born in the U.S. are the result of unplanned litters. 

We spay/neuter cats & dogs preventing pets from becoming homeless or ending up (themselves or their offspring) in over-burdened shelters.  We also provide s/n and support to caretakers of feral cat colonies and provide assistance to caretakers trying to keep their pets.
