HELP TO BREAK THE CYCLE AND BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION
To assist with getting your pet spayed or neutered local shelters and animal groups will occasionally hold free or low cost spay/neuter clinics. Check with your local shelters, they should have information regarding any type of services or clinics being held.
Here on the Big Island the Hawaii Island Humane Society offers a limited amount of free spay/neuter coupons at their shelters at the beginning of each month. These coupons are accepted by most Veterinarians and offers the owner free spay/neuter surgeries. There might be additional charges associated with the surgeries that you will be responsible for. Contact your Veterinarian to see if they accepted these coupons and if there are any additional charges.
The number 1 reason to get your pets "fixed" is because spaying and neutering helps fight pet overpopulation.
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.
Your female pet will live a longer, healthier life.
Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast cancer, which is fatal in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet BEFORE her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases.
Neutering provides major health benefits for your male.
Besides preventing unwanted litters, neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer and possible prostate issues.
Your male dog won't want to roam away from home.
An intact male will do just about anything to find a mate! That includes digging his way under the fence and making like Houdini to escape from the house. Once he's free to roam, he risks getting injured in traffic and possible legal issues for you, the owner, if he hurts someone or their pet.
