Control the Pet Population
Euthanasia is the leading cause of companion animal death in the United States. in Gulfport alone, an estimated 9,000 animals are Euthanized each year. More than 73 THOUSAND are euthanized each year in the State of Mississippi.
Nationwide, four to six million cats and dogs are Euthanized yearly. The two largest causes of Euthanasia are the most fixable; overpopulation and lost pets with no identification.
You can prevent euthanasia by having your pets spayed or neutered. Fewer litters mean fewer animals competing for homes and emptier shelters.Spaying and neutering are common procedures that most pets will recover from fully in just 7-10 days. You can schedule surgery from at the local humane society or with your veterinarian and rest easy knowing that you have prevented generations of unwanted animals and have added an average 2-3 years to your pets life!
Making sure your pet is well taken care of is another way to prevent euthanasia by preventing disease and loss. Annual trips to your vet's office and updated shots are vital. Keeping identification and rabies tags on your pet at all times and getting pets microchipped further ensures their safety.
