Today you are taking the first step in helping to stop the pet overpopulation crisis in Ontario.
Tens of thousands of dogs and cats end up on the street or orphaned every year, with many more becoming neglected and abused.
Pet overpopulation is at crisis levels in Ontario. Having your pet spayed or neutered will directly address this problem. In addition, the pet overpopulation contributes to the cycle of neglect and abuse. The Ontario SPCA responds to over 13,000 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.
