Spay & Neuter

Did your family or friends adopt a companion animal (pet) last summer? 

If your companion animal (pet) has not been spayed or neutered yet, now is the time to get it done!

By about four months of age, cats can have kittens and dogs can have puppies. Many people wait too long to get this operation done, thinking their companion animal is still just a baby themselves. But before they know it, they have a litter of kittens or a litter of puppies that they’ll need to find homes for. Finding a loving, responsible home for each animal isn’t always that easy!

What’s more, if those animals don’t get spayed or neutered, they will have babies too - meaning more loving, responsible, forever homes will need to be found.

SPCA spays and neuters every animal adopted from our SPCA Centres, even those as young as eight-weeks-old. 

We also recommend that people have their companion animals spayed or neutered as soon as possible. Remember, it is an easy procedure for your veterinarian to perform.

For more questions about when to have your companion animal spayed or neutered, speak with your veterinarian.
