There are many reasons to spay and neuter your pets according to experts. Sterilization of your cat or dog will increase his/her chance of a longer and healthier life. Altering your canine friend will increase his life an average of 1 to 3 years, felines, 3 to 5 years. Altered animals have a very low to no risk of mammary gland tumors/cancer, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, plyometric, and uterine, ovarian and testicular cancers.

Sterilizing your cat/dog makes him/her a better pet, reducing his/her urge to roam and decreasing the risk of contracting diseases or getting hurt as they roam. Surveys indicate that as many as 85% of dogs hit by cars are unaltered.

The Cape May County Animal Shelter also offers assistance for qualified residents for cats and pit bulls. For information on the voucher program, or for more information on spay and neuter assistance,  please call 1-800-351-1822 or  visit The Animal Alliance of Cape May County click on spay/neuter clinic tab (next to home page).
