Spay & Neuter Information

Did you know?

In the United States puppies and kittens are being born at a rate of 10,000 per hour, which amounts to 240,000 a day and 87,000,000 a year.

One unsterilized animal has the potential to set off a cycle of breeding that can indirectly generate thousands of litters:

 

The Prolific Dog* The Prolific Cat*
french_bulldog_with_puppies = 67,000 dogs
*What one female dog & her offspring can produce in 6 yrs.
kitten_facing_an_older_cat = 420,000 cats
* What one female cat & her offspring can produce in in 7 yrs.

 

Spaying and neutering makes pets better, more affectionate companions,
less likely to bite or roam the neighborhood, run away, or get into fights.

Letting your pet have one-or even two-litters can cause big problems. Even if you find homes for all (or most) of the puppies or kittens, what about their puppies and kittens?

An estimated 6-8 million dogs & cats are euthanized in shelters each year. Millions more are abandoned only to suffer from illness or injury before dying.

It costs taxpayers over $2 billion each year to round up, house, euthanize & dispose of homeless animals. Spaying and neutering helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.

The Humane Society of Camden County offers vouchers to help defray the cost of spaying and neutering adopted cats and dogs.
