I have heard every excuse.. if you breed your dog you are the problem. Responsible breeders do not do it for money... they do it for the betterment of the breed... they are showing in the ring... they are doing genetic testing..they do repeated health checks on blood lines . they are following up on their puppies.... they do health testing.... they socialize their puppies... and they screen their homes....
Want your kids to experience birth? Most shelters would love a foster home for a dog that came into the shelter pregnant. Check with your shelter today to get approved or get a video.
It will make my dog fat? Lack of exercise and overfeeding will cause your pet to pack on the extra pounds—not neutering. Your pet will remain fit and trim as long as you continue to provide exercise and monitor her food intake.
If I find homes for my pet's litters, then I won't contribute to the problem, right? Wrong. Only a finite number of people want pets. So every home you find for your pet’s offspring takes away a home from a loving animal already at a shelter.
Isn't it wrong to deprive an animal of the natural right to reproduce? No, it’s wrong to allow these animals to reproduce millions of unwanted offspring that are eventually killed because there aren’t enough responsible homes.
It isn't healthy? Your female pet will live a longer, healthier life. Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases. Neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems.
