The Importance of Spay/Neuter
Proactive Animal Sheltering Spay/Neuter Position:
We believe spay/neuter is VITAL to humanely reducing the dog and cat overpopulation and shelter/rescue intake. We focus on spay/neuter and It Must Be All Three: owned pets, community cats and shelter/rescue animals.
Best Friends Position:
The role of spay/neuter in achieving no-kill
Best Friends believes in sterilization as a method of population control for domesticated animals. With millions of animals being born every year, we believe that the only exemptions should be when it is medically inadvisable to perform the surgery and when the animals are in the care of a highly responsible breeder.
For a community to reach and sustain no-kill status, spay/neuter surgeries should be made available widely. In communities around the country, spay/neuter is an essential part of achieving sustainable lifesaving.
