Spay or neuter your pet to prevent overpopulation

As summer rolls in and days get longer, your pets are more likely to breed–unless they are spayed or neutered. Cats tend to be seasonal maters and “kitten season” is just around the corner. Consider this, 2 dogs and their offspring can produce more than 60,000 puppies in 6 years, and 2 cats and their offspring can produce more than 240,000 kittens in 7 years (Souris Valley Animal shelter, www.svaspets.com).

All of these unplanned puppies and kittens lead to homeless dogs and cats roaming the county or being abandoned by their owners. Too often the end result is that these animals are picked up by animal control agencies and if no home can be found they are euthanized.

To promote spaying and neutering during the month of March, the Spay-Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) will be making 2 visits to the area. During the visits free spaying and neutering will be available to Fort Bend County residents who receive government assistance (food stamps, free lunch program in school, Medicaid, TANF, WIC) and senior citizens aged 65 and over.

Spaying or neutering household pets not only stops overpopulation, but provide other benefits for both pets and their families. For example, spaying female dogs and cats eliminates the possibility of developing uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the threat of mammary cancer. Behavior may be improved after neutering as male cats tend to reduce territorial spraying, neutered cats and dogs fight less, and male dogs and cats tend to stay home more after neutering because they no longer wander in search of a mate. Spaying and neutering may cause mild discomfort with most pets returning to normal activity with 24 to 72 hours.

Come visit the SNAP bus on:

June 18 at the Rosenberg Annex, 4520 Reading Road, Rosenberg.Clients will be selected from a lottery, which will be held between 6:30 and 7:30 AM when the advance team arrives on-site. There is no point in arriving until just before the lottery begins. The lottery will determine your place in line. Please do not feed your dog or cat after 10 p.m. the night before surgery. To qualify, proof of participation in one of the following programs is required: food stamps, free lunch program in schools, Medicaid, major VA disability, Section 8 housing, SSI/SSD, TANF, and WIC. Citizens age 65 and older are also eligible. If you do not qualify, please call 713-862-8001 for information on reduced-cost spaying and neutering. For more information call 800-762-7762 or visit www.snapus.org.
