What is Spay/Neuter?

Also known as altering, sterilizing or fixing, these terms for a minor procedure that makes animals unable to reproduce. Females are spayed - males are neutered. The surgeries are performed by veterinarians while the animals are under anesthesia.

Cats are Critical!  An unaltered female cat can produce hundreds of kittens in a lifetime. Spaying and neutering cats is the best way to control the cat population - and it is especially so for feral cats and kittens.
