Before getting a dog or cat. Just make sure you have the money and have them spay or neuter.

Honestly I think its mainly ignorance and just plain out NNOT giving a frig and lazyness bottomline! You can get a pet spayed-neutered for 35 - 50 at shelters look around thers just NO excuse to NOT spay or neuter if you cant afford to spay or neuter your pet then bottom line you cant afford a pet and shouldn't have one!

The main reason may be that it is too expensive. Unbelievably though I have known men who will not neuter their male dogs because they feel it will make the animal less masculine! All my animals have been neutered and I believe it prevents some cancers in old age. It is also less distressing for a male dog who if they are not neutered will be stressed if a bitch is in heat. There are so many unwanted cats and dogs in the world that need homes without any more unwanted puppies and kittens...

Once we take on the responsibility of an animal, then we must also take on the responsibility of its total care; HOWEVER, let's be honest here. The prices that are charged by vets in general are outrageous. I have a multi-animal household & I have never gotten a "break" on spaying/neutering any of them & they are all done. We all have a part to play in this & it really shouldn't be about profit......

Go to Simcoe Vet's. It is so much cheaper and they are wonderful people there. It's called Simcoe Queensway Vet's. 519-428-2630

I feel like vets really ought to donate their services to the humane society at least once a month to do spaying and neutering based on income level (or even free). I know I would if I were a vet. With all of the vets in the US we could get a lot of pets spayed and neutered eliminating alot of homeless animals. I always adopt homeless and sickly animals that need my help. They give alot of love and companionship.

It's not THAT expensive. Having a pet involves looking out for its welfare. Vets have to make a living, but of course shouldn't overcharge.

For some "owners" spaying or neutering will not happen because they are too cheap and lazy to take responsibility for their pets!

Wed Dec 5 12 #5 All of the above! Getting your PRECIOUS BABY fixed AS SOON AS 4 months, as that is AS SOON AS they can pregnant or cause pregnancy! You will be helping to prevent the senseless OVER POPULATIONS IN shelters! & rescues & reduce the senseless need for the BARBARIC INHUMANE gas chambers, or EUTHANASIA! I am not making anything up! Adopt from a shelter or rescue! Investigate breeders! Be on the lookout, be against kitten & puppy mills! Thanks Merry Christmas.

I beleive that if you can afford to needle and spay or neuter your pets, you shoud not get one.
