Did you know that…
- Neutering pets makes them less likely to roam. An un-neutered male dog can detect an un-spayed female dog in heat for up to 3 ½ miles. As a result more than 80% of dogs hit by cars are un-neutered males.
- Altering your pet greatly reduces or eliminates the desire for them to spray or mark their territory.
- A dog that is neutered is less likely to fight with other animals for a mate or territory.
- You’ll greatly reduce the chance of testicular and ovarian cancer if your pets are altered at an early age.
- Sterilized animals often exhibit fewer behavior and temperament problems than unaltered animals.
- Spaying and neutering helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.
Don’t you want your pet to live as long as possible?
Attention Pet Owners
The Humane Society of Broward County is offering FREE spay or neuter for pit bulls and pit bull mixes thanks to a grant received from Dolly’s Dream.
In order to qualify, the owner must be a Broward County resident and the dog must be 8 weeks of age.
Our goal is to sterilize 100 dogs over the next six months. In addition, you can get your dog vaccinated, tested for heartworm and microchipped for a fee.
Appointments are necessary so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 954-463-7729.
The surgeries will be performed at the Humane Society of Broward County located at 2070 Griffin Road and at the portable spay/neuter sterilization unit located at Sunview Park 1500 SW 42nd Avenue in Fort Lauderdale.
