Many organizations in the greater Chicago area are now providing low cost spay and neuter programs.
Pet Overpopulation is the number one killer of dogs and cats in the United States.
Each year an estimated ten million dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are put to death in our nation’s animal shelters as a method of population control. The majority of these animals were young, healthy and adoptable. In addition, millions of abandoned pets and feral cats suffer on the street as they attempt to survive on their own.
How can you help prevent pet overpopulation?
The Answer: spay/neuter your pets.
Get the facts about cats…
•A female cat can begin breeding as young as 4 months old.
•One unaltered female cat and her off-spring can produce 420,000 cats in only 7 years.
