Spay Day - Get It Done!

Getting your dog or cat spayed or neutered is of utmost importantance in the effort to keep the homeless pet population under control. Today, Spay Day USA, is our reminder to GET IT DONE!

Sure, we are all touched by the little faces of new puppies, and some may even think about having a litter themselves, but it's best to leave that to a responsible dog breeder. Experienced dog breeders are equipped and prepared to care for a litter, and can handle any health problems that might arise. A reputable breeder often has new owners waiting for puppies before they are born, and will screen prospective buyers to ensure the puppies go to good, caring homes.

Talk to your veterinarian about spaying as soon as you get a puppy. There are health and behavioral benefits to spaying your dog before she has a heat. Most dogs are spayed between 5 and 8 months of age, but it can be done as early as 2 months or any older age.

Happy Spay Day USA!
