Why Spay/Neuter?


In Louisiana 130,000 pets enter shelters each year. Of that number approximately 92,000 are put to sleep annually. Louisiana shelters can’t save and support the huge number of accidental litters, strays and family pets brought to the shelter every day. Because of this, healthy, good-natured dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are put down at an alarming rate.

You can make an impact on the lives of these animals and reduce the numbers of pets put to sleep each year by spaying and neutering your pets. By doing this, you are helping Robinson’s Rescue to “save lives through prevention” and prevent unwanted litters from being born.

Spaying/neutering your pets does not only benefit our community, but also benefits you and your cat or dog.

Fixing your pet can decrease their risk of diseases that are expensive to treat. In addition, pets that are spayed/neutered have decreased or zero risk of certain types of cancer.

Neutered male cats are significantly less likely to spray (urine-mark) or wander in search of females.

Spayed female dogs or cats no longer experience a heat cycle. This eliminates the extremely uncomfortable feeling they experience while being in heat, which often leads them to cry incessantly, act nervous, and attract males.

Animals that have been spayed/neutered are also less likely to bite, roam or get into fights and make better companions because they are not motivated to wander in search of a mate.
