How much does spaying or neutering cost?

The cost of spaying or neutering a cat depends on the age of the animal, the type of surgery done, and whether or not the procedure will be performed at the veterinarian's office or a low-cost clinic. For information on the cost of spaying or neutering for your cat, please contact your local animal shelter, humane society or rescue organization.

What are the benefits of spaying or neutering?

Spaying or neutering a female cat or dog makes her less likely to get pregnant by another male animal and less likely to fight with other female dogs or cats. Spaying or neutering a male dog or cat makes him less likely to get pregnant by another dog or cat and less likely to fight with other male dogs or cats.

Many veterinarians feel that neutering a male dog or cat makes him more likely to protect his territory, a behavior that benefits the people in the neighborhood.

Some people choose to neuter their male dog or cat because they want him to "grow up" as a well-behaved companion, while others do so to prevent unwanted behavior such as marking or mounting another dog or cat. The decision to spay or neuter a male or female dog or cat may also be based on how they were raised.

How can I keep my dog or cat from being spayed or neutered?

An owner can keep her dog or cat from being spayed or neutered by not allowing her to roam or get into fights with other animals. Also, if the owner is not comfortable with the idea of having her dog or cat spayed or neutered, she should talk to her veterinarian about other options, such as using a contraceptive implant or putting her dog or cat in a "kennel" or cage.
