May is Spay and Neuter Your Pet Month

  1. 1. May Is spay/neuter month! During the month of May get HUGE savings when you spay or neuter your pet!
  2. 2. What are the benefits of neutering my pet: • Reduces or eliminates risk of spraying and marking • Less desire to roam, therefore less likely to be injured in fights or auto accidents • Risk of testicular cancer is eliminated, and decreases incidence of prostate disease • Reduces number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies • Decreases aggressive behavior, including dog bites • Helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives
  3. 3. What are the benefits of spaying my pet: • No heat cycles, therefore males will not be attracted • Less desire to roam • Risk of mammary gland tumors, ovarian and/or uterine cancer is reduced or eliminated, especially if done before the first heat cycle • Reduces number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies • Helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives
  4. 4. Top 3 Reasons to Spay & Neuter: Reason #1: • It helps to reduce companion animal overpopulation. Most countries have a surplus of companion animals and are forced to euthanize or disregard their great suffering. The surplus is in the millions in the United States. Cats are 45 times as prolific, and dogs 15 times as prolific, as humans. They do not need our help to expand their numbers; they need our help to reduce their numbers until there are good homes for them all. Our owner and their father abandoned us in our time of need. Now the streets are our home….
  5. 5. Top 3 Reasons to Spay & Neuter: Reason #2 • Sterilization of your cat or dog will increase his/her chance of a longer and healthier life. Altering your canine friend will increase his life an average of 1 to 3 years, felines, 3 to 5 years. Altered animals have a very low to no risk of mammary gland tumors/cancer, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, pyometria, and uterine, ovarian and testicular cancers. Mammary mass in a cat Testicular cancer in a dog
  6. 6. Top 3 Reasons to Spay & Neuter: Reason #3 • Sterilizing your cat/dog makes him/her a better pet, reducing his/her urge to roam and decreasing the risk of contracting diseases or getting hurt as they roam. Surveys indicate that as many as 85% of dogs hit by cars are unaltered. Intact male cats living outside have been shown to live on average less than two years. Feline Immunodeficiency Syndrome is spread by bites and intact cats fight a great deal more than altered cats Please wake up! I just wanted to take you to the park for our 1st date…
  7. 7. Overpopulation risks: • Increases disease/parasite transmission from roaming dogs & cats that are not vaccinated • Stray animals are known to cause property damage in to the thousands from destruction of your property to injuring you or your pet • The streets are filled with unwanted pets that often end up in bad situations and suffer. Don’t worry, I won’t let that happen to you…
  8. 8. Additional Benefits: • “Your community will also benefit. Unwanted animals are becoming a very real concern in many places. Stray animals can easily become a public nuisance, soiling parks and streets, ruining shrubbery, frightening children and elderly people, creating noise and other disturbances, causing automobile accidents, and sometimes even killing livestock or other pets.” - The American Veterinary Medical Association • “The capture, impoundment and eventual destruction of unwanted animals costs taxpayers and private humanitarian agencies over a billion dollars each year. As a potential source of rabies and other less serious diseases, they can be a public health hazard.” - The American Veterinary Medical Association • These next few slides show you the impact “unwanted” animals play on a county by county level. This shows euthanasia rates and cost to the county
  9. 9. 2012 Area shelter euthanasia stats: • Brunswick County: $383,443.07 Dogs – intake: 2,072 Euthanized: 1,220 Cats – intake: 3,245 Euthanized: 2,973 • Duplin County: $12,423.00 Dogs – intake: 804 Euthanized: 200 Cats – intake: 347 Euthanized: 222
  10. 10. 2012 Area shelter euthanasia stats: • New Hanover County: $1,220,939.00 Dogs – intake: 1,755 Euthanized: 753 Cats – intake: 1,671 Euthanized: 1,116 • Onslow County: $772,170.00 Dogs – intake: 2,948 Euthanized: 1,119 Cats – intake: 3,121 Euthanized: 2,753

  12. 12. Spaying & Neutering Saves You Money! How… • Litters of kittens/puppies can cost you upwards of $500.00 by the time they are old enough to wean just for food, vaccines, and routine medications! • If your female requires a c-section that is an average of $1,000.00 - $1,500.00! • Males dogs are 75% more likely to roam and fight which can cost $300.00 to thousands of dollars in laceration repairs and injuries sustained from running at large!
  13. 13. Spay/Neuter because adoptions are down in numbers… • Due to the economy, shelters and breeders are reporting a decrease in adoptions & sales. This creates a huge burden on the shelters & rescues! My name is Angelina Aussie & I did my part & adopted out of species children… Thanks, I think… I’m confused Please spay & neuter! I can’t take much more!
