February Is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month

In fact, February has been officially named Spay/Neuter Awareness month so I thought it was a great time to remind you that we can all help reduce the number of dogs and cats on the streets and in our shelters if we spay or neuter our pets. This surgery is inexpensive and can often be paid partially by local shelters if you qualify for financial assistance. And it will make your pet calmer and less of a stray – pun fully intended! 😉 Read our benefits of spaying and neutering article to learn more.
