Many of the pets that enter shelters never find new homes. The resources aren't available to take care of these pets indefinitely, so euthanization is unfortunately a fact of shelter life.
Spaying and neutering your pet eliminates the possibility that your pet will develop certain cancers and diseases of the reproductive organs.
Spayed and neutered pets are typically better behaved, less aggressive, and have less desire to wander off! Local governments spend over 1 billion each year sheltering and euthanizing homeless pets. Whether you're a pet owner or not, lack of spay/neuter costs you.
