Benefits of Spaying & Neutering
You can help both homeless animals and your community by having your pets fixed. Each year, the City of Lodi euthanizes hundreds of puppies, kittens, dogs, and cats because there are not enough homes for them all.
Every puppy or kitten born means one less home available for orphaned shelter animals. In addition to saving lives, there are many other positive reasons to spay or neuter your pet.
