Why Spay or Neuter?
Spaying and neutering helps fight pet overpopulation.
 Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.
The good news is that responsible pet owners can make a difference. By having your dog or cat spayed or neutered, you will do your part to prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens. Spaying and neutering prevent unwanted litters, help protect against some serious health problems, and may reduce many of the behavioral problems associated with the mating instinct.
In fact, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association many serious health risks including cancers and uterine infections can be minimized or prevented altogether with spaying and neutering.
The procedure has no effect on a pet’s intelligence or ability to learn, play, work or hunt. Some pets tend to be better behaved following surgery.
It is limited to Oconee County residents only.

Why Micro-chip?
Unlike collars and tags, micro-chips remain with the pet for life.
 Dogs and cats with microchips are more likely to be returned to their owners than pets without. According to Science Daily, cats with microchips were 20 times more likely to be returned home than cats without, while dogs with microchips were 2.5 times more likely to be returned home than those without. The results of this study underscore the importance of microchips for your pet’s safety.
