It’s that time of year again – Fix Your Pet Month! This is a program of the Ontario SPCA’s encouraging people to have their pets spayed and neutered. So what’s it all about?
Pet overpopulation still exists in Ontario as a direct result of animals left unaltered. Each year, tens of thousands of dogs and cats end up on the streets where they fall victim to neglect and abuse, or in shelters in search of new homes.
Our goal is to help reduce the number of homeless pets and fix as many animals as possible. With that in mind, the Ontario SPCA has two high-volume, self-sustaining spay/neuter services located in Stouffville and Barrie. The public, shelters, and rescue groups are welcome, regardless of geography or income level.
Spaying/neutering pets may also reduce health risks and physical stress, and improve behaviour in your pet. Fixed pets are also less likely to roam, reducing the risk of injury, accident and loss.
