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...

All of thee above. I have heard everything. The other night a women told me she hasn't fixed her male Pit bull mix (who is know to be aggressive) because she's earthy. Sigh! Come on folks there is no room in the Inn. Please be responsible pet owners. Thank you.

Lowering the cost of spay/neut is one great solution. There are low cost s/n clinics if people knew where to look for them or people have the other archaic ideas - like its not good for animal. Unfortunately there is a lot of ignorance in this world and a lot of people do not realize that it DOES cost to properly take care of the animals they get and once the animal has a problem it becomes disposable. Education is probably the key, but people only learn what they want.

Isn't it funny how people can afford to BUY a dog or cat but not to look after it properly (and have it neutered). We've always adopted cats from the RSPCA etc. where it is a REQUIREMENT of adoption that they are neutered.

On the topic of vet's charging a lot, well they are in business. Would you be willing to work for free in your day job? In any case, many animal charities will help with costs. The truth is that many people just can't be bothered.
