Spay or Neuter Surgery for Pets

The terms spay or neuter refers to the surgical sterilization of an animal. Female animals are spayed by having their ovaries and uterus removed under general anesthesia. Male animals are neutered by having their testicles removed under general anesthesia. After either surgery, the cat or dog is unable to reproduce.

Having your dog or cat sterilized can help your pet live a longer, healthier life and also helps reduce the number of unwanted animals brought into the shelter.
