Pet overpopulation is a huge problem, but fortunately there’s a solution: Spaying/neutering our companion pets. In just six years, one female dog and her offspring can give birth to 67,000 puppies. In seven years, one cat and her young can produce 420,000 kittens. These numbers illustrate why spaying and neutering our pets is so absolutely critical to the welfare of animals and our community.
Spaying is the removal of the reproductive organs of female dogs and cats. Neutering is the removal of the testicles of male dogs and cats. It’s quick, easy and safe – and the Humane Society of Charlotte has been providing spay/neuter services in Charlotte since 1982. The HSC Spay/Neuter Clinic was actually the very first low-cost clinic in the Southeast offering high quality, affordable surgeries. And that’s not all — Critter Care Wellness Wednesday, HSC’s low-cost medical clinic, also provides vaccinations and tests against some of the most common cat and dog diseases.
Spaying and neutering your pet, and ensuring their vaccinations are up to date, is not only good for your pets and your family, but also creates a healthier community for everyone here in Charlotte, whether they have two legs or four.
