Today you are taking the first step in helping to stop pet overpopulation in Ontario.
Thousands of dogs and cats end up on the street or orphaned every year, with many more becoming neglected and abused.
Pet overpopulation is an issue in Ontario. Having your pet spayed or neutered will directly address this problem. In addition, pet overpopulation contributes to the cycle of neglect and abuse. The Ontario SPCA responds to close to 17,000 animal cruelty complaints every year. Protecting your pet, by having them spayed or neutered, can help reduce this number and make our community a safer place for our pets. Spaying/neutering pets will reduce health risks and physical stress, and improve behaviour. Fixed pets are also less likely to roam, reducing the risk of injury, accident and loss.
