What Every Pet Owner Should Know About Sterilization The number of homeless dogs and cats in the United States is unforgivably high Blame for this problem should be appropriately placed on the millions of irresponsible pet owners in the country who refuse to take the time or make the effort to educate themselves of the advantages of having an animal sterilized Neutering an animal is the process of removing its reproductive organs Males are neutered by removing their testicles Females are also neutered although the process of removing the ovaries and fallopian tubes is more commonly called spaying The benefits of having a pet neutered are innumerable Sterile animals will not contribute to the overabundance of strays roaming America are less likely to bite and typically lead longer healthier lives As a nation we claim to love dogs and cats Millions of households have companion animals and billions of dollars yearly are spent on pet supplies and food But as a nation we should be ashamed that another statistic runs into the millions each year the number of dogs and cats given up to shelters or left to die in our streets Stray and homeless animals get into trash containers defecate in public areas and on private lawns and frighten or anger people who have no understanding of their misery or needs The Humane Society of the United States HSUS estimates that each year 12 million strays enter the five thousand animal shelters nationwide Twenty million will be euthanized Humane Society of the United States 1997 Many people want their purebred pets to produce one litter before being sterilized primarily for profit Yet most pets should never be bred And according to the HSUS one fourth of the strays are purebreds HSUS 1997 Even if a breeder finds a home for each baby in the litter there is no guarantee that the new owners will take responsible actions to insure their pets do not mate
