I don't need to spay or neuter my pet

October 31, 2011

I was talking with someone earlier who had 2 male dogs and didn't want to neuter them. After adding a third, a female, they decided to spay her and neuter the younger of the two males. Their reasoning for not fixing the two males in the first place? "We don't have a female, so it's not a problem."

It doesn't matter if you have a female dog or not, a male dog will accomplish amazing feats to escape and mate with a female dog in heat. You may believe your dog is the most well-behaved animal in the neighborhood, but their personality and obedience go out the window when nature takes over.

You can't trust the owners of a female dog to spay her or keep her properly confined so a male dog can't get to her but you can do your part to keep unwanted animals off the streets by making sure your pets are fixed.

Unless you have a legitimate reason and intent to breed them, you should always get your pets fixed. Besides helping the overpopulation problems, there are a number of benefits to spaying or neutering your pet and it's not very expensive!

From the ASPCA:

"Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering."

Please treat your pet as a living being with feelings, and a member of your family because they are the first and long to be the latter.
