About Spay/Neuter

We believe in sterilization of companion animals and it is a common practice for conscientious breeders to sell puppies who are intended as family companions or service dogs, with a spay/neuter agreement or already sterilized to prevent undesired reproduction. The truth of the matter is that unsterilized dogs often end up as part of a backyard 'puppy mill' or are euthanized in an animal shelter due to neglect. According to the United States Humane Society, about 2.4 million healthy dogs and cats are put down in U.S. shelters each year. Often these animals are the offspring of your cherished family pet that end up in undesirable situations. Spay/neuter is a proven way to reduce this tragedy and increase the likelihood that each pet is loved and well cared for by their family.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, spaying of female dogs can help protect them from some serious health problems later in life such as uterine infections and breast cancer. Neutering of male dogs can lessen its risk of developing benign prostatic hyperplasia and testicular cancer. Spaying and neutering can prevent accidental litters, help protect against serious health problems, and may reduce many of the behavioral issues associated with the mating instinct. The procedure has no effect on a pet's intelligence or ability to learn, play, or work. Some pets tend to be better behaved after sterilization, making them a better family companion!
