Why Spay or Neuter your Pet?

Every year thousands of cats and dogs end up homeless and on the streets in Pakistan. Sadly we don’t have proper shelters or enough good homes for them. Only a few of these animals are able to find permanent loving homes or make it to small non-profit shelters. Even a smaller number of these stray animals are able to find individuals caring enough to feed them daily. Countless cats and dogs are run over by careless drivers and end up either dead or badly wounded.

Spaying or neutering animals help save lives of these animals that are otherwise thrown out on the street and left to their own devices. Did you know that cats can become pregnant at five months old while dogs can become pregnant as early as six months? Both, cats and dogs are capable of having 2 to 3 litters per year.
So when you spay or neuter your pet or a stray, you are basically saving their kittens or puppies from ending up homeless.

But Some People Say that Neutering/Spaying is Bad...

There is nothing ethically or morally wrong with spaying or neutering an animal. For those who tell you that it’s wrong, please ask them this:

How many stray animals have they given shelters to?
How many strays have they adopted?
Will they take care of all the cats & dogs that end up on the streets because their parents were not spayed?

FYI...What is Spaying and Neutering?

Neutering: Having the testicles of a male animal surgically removed so he cannot impregnate a female.
Spaying: Having the reproductive organs of a female animal surgically removed so she cannot become pregnant.

2 Heartfelt 'Adopt a Pet' Posters

Instead of buying pets, adopt them from shelters and save lives. If you have enough space at your home and time on your hands, foster an animal till there is a permanent home for it or better yet, provide it a permanent loving home.

Here are two posters I found that will touch your heart.
