Are you feeding a stray cat? Is your household feline pet spayed or neutered? Spaying or neutering the animals in your life increases the health and happiness of not just your own feline friend: you improve life for all cats. Consider the following spay/neuter benefits provided by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals:
- Spayed cats are less likely to develop breast cancer and will not be at risk for ovarian or uterine cancer, while neutered males will not get testicular cancer.
- Neutering males prevents disease, parasite transmission, and injury caused by aggression and fighting
- Spay/neutering your cat helps control feline overpopulation - an issue that sees millions of cats end up in shelters or euthanized due to a lack of good homes.
Spay or neuter your cat for free courtesy of the Animal Shelter Alliance of Portland’s Spay & Save Program. Spay and neuter operations begin Feb. 23 until Feb. 27. Schedule surgeries by calling (503) 802-6755 or 1-800-345-SPAY.
