Humane Society of Chilton County FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)



Category: Main -> Spay - Neuter

Question
·  Why should I spay or neuter my pet?
·  Are there health benefits to spay & neuter?
·  Where can I find low cost spay neuter options?

Answer
·  Why should I spay or neuter my pet?

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. As a result, every year 4 to 6 million animals are euthanized because there are no homes for them.

·  Are there health benefits to spay & neuter?

Spaying and neutering can drastically improve your pet's health and life expectancy. The idea that pets become fat and lazy when they are spayed or neutered is a myth. Sterilized pets lead healthier, longer lives.

Spaying female eliminated the possibility of uterine and ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the risk of breast cancer. Neutering a male reduces the risk of both prostate enlargement and prostate cancer.

Neutering also will make your pet more affectionate and less likely to roam, get in fights, or become lost.

The Chilton County Humane Society offers $20 spay/neuter certificates redeemable at the Alabama Spay Neuter Clinic in Birmingham for a low cost option for getting your pets spayed or neutered.  Once a month they will pick up in the Humane Society of Chilton County shelter's parking lot, take your pet to Birmingham for the procedure, and bring them back the next day for you pick up.
