What is Spay/Neuter?
Also known as altering, sterilizing or fixing, spaying and neutering are terms for a minor procedure that makes animals unable to reproduce. Females are spayed - males are neutered. The surgeries are performed by veterinarians while the animals are under anesthesia.
Please note: We do not have a veterinarian available to offer spay/neuter procedures at the shelter.
Cats are Critical!
Since cats come in to heat repeatedly and have five to seven kittens in each litter, an unaltered female cat can produce hundreds of kittens in a lifetime. Though many people think cats "can take care of themselves," spaying and neutering cats is critical. Feral cats are a special challenge.Spay/Neuter Links
