Why should you spay or neuter your pet?
One of the most important health decisions a pet owner will make is to have their pet spayed or neutered. Spaying or neutering promotes a healthier life for your pet and saves you money. It also reduces overpopulation and euthanasia of unwanted animals.
New York City has many free or low-cost clinics and programs where pet owners can learn more and access services.
