do not buy from breeders. Teach your kids eithics and choose to adopt.

30,000 pets were killed in my local shelter. Yes, there are many low cost or not cost spay and neuter options. Please do it.

No idea why people don't neuter their pets...just very selfish probably.

One litter of puppies will easily cost the price of spaying or neutering, if you feed the puppies properly after they start to ween off mom.

my cat wasn't well enough to be neutered, as she had been a rescue from an owner who fed her as a kitten, and young cat on dog food until when at 2 years old she finally came into season- but after she'd finished she was taken in to the RSPCA who used to neuter for free. I also read a book- the Natural Cat, where the author said if neutering was delayed, until after puberty the animal could still have a sex life, but without the problem of pregnancy some people could well be influenced by...

It's really a shame that so many people get a cat or dog with no clue as to what is involved. Sadly, vet care is very costly. But, not dealing with simple things like spay/neuter, yearly shots, dental care - can lead to a long list of issues which will translate into much more cost in the long run. There are Spay/Neuter clinics at places like local Animal Control centres, and usually they provide low-cost services. It's not triviel taking o n a fur kid, but very rewarding when you do.

If people bought more from shelters, which you always should and rescue an animal it would already be desexed or if too young, you get a voucher to bring your pet back when it's old enough to have it done. It's the inexpensive and humane way to get and desex a pet.

Bottom line is that it saves lives, and in doing so there are fewer dogs and cats put down for the lack of a loving home.
