No-birth is the first step towards a no-kill society.

Each day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. -- and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all the animals in need. As a result, every year 4 to 6 million animals are euthanized because there are not enough homes.

 

We cannot adopt our way out of this dilemma.

Why Spay/Neuter

It’s good for your pet...

 

  • Dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.

  • It can reduce the incidence of a number of health problems.

  • Spaying eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of breast cancer.

  • Neutering eliminates testicular cancer and decreases the incidence of prostate disease.


It’s good for you...
 

  • Spaying keeps unwelcome male animals away.

  • Spaying and neutering makes more affectionate companions.

  • Neutering cats makes them less likely to spray and mark their territory.

  • Spaying eliminates the heat cycle, the regular bleeding, and the incessant crying and nervous behavior that often accompany the heat cycle.

  • It reduces behavior and temperament problems.

  • Spaying and neutering can make pets less likely to bite.

  • Pets are less likely to roam the neighborhood, run away, or get into fights.


It’s good for the community...
 

  • Communities spend millions of dollars managing unwanted animals.

  • Irresponsible breeding contributes to the problem of dog bites and attacks.

  • Animal shelters are overburdened with surplus animals.

  • Stray pets and homeless animals get into trash containers, defecate in public areas or on private lawns, and frighten or anger people who have no understanding of their misery or needs.

  • Some stray animals also scare away or kill birds and wildlife.
