Why is spay/neuter so important for our community?

In 2020 over 31,000 animals were admitted to shelters in West Virginia; over 5000 animals were euthanized. There will never be enough homes for these animals. The only way to get ahead of this overpopulation is spaying and neutering. 


Fix Them All

Did you know that 80% of the kittens born every year are born outside? These are kittens born to strays and ferals. It is so important that we are also getting these outside cats spayed and neutered so that we can stop the flood of kittens born outside every year. 

Health Benefits

Spaying your female pet helps them live longer, healthier lives. You can prevent uterine infections and breast tumors by getting your animal spayed.

Neutering your male pet helps prevent testicular and prostate cancer. 


What age should my pet get fixed?

Kittens can be spayed at just two months old!

Many studies have proven that pediatric surgeries are easier and have fewer complications. Younger animals recover quicker from anesthesia and heal much faster. By spaying/neutering early, you greatly decrease the risk of certain reproductive cancers. Pediatric spay/neuter ensures that there is no risk of unwanted accidental pregnancies.
