Why Spay and Neuter Your Pets?
SEAACA is a strong proponent of altering animals. The most important reason to alter your pet is to prevent more litters of animals. Did you know pet overpopulation is the leading cause of death for dogs and cats? Shelters are overburdened with too many homeless animals. Not all of them will be adopted. Every litter born reduces the chances for other animals to find homes. Until the numbers of cats and dogs drop significantly, many will be humanely euthanized because there is no place for them.

Early Spaying and Neutering
SEAACA is a proponent of Early Spay/Neuter. Altering pets at a young age diminishes or eliminates deadly cancers of the breast, uterus, ovaries and testicles, and reduces the possibility of prostrate disease. Veterinarians indicate surgery on puppies and kittens as young as 8 weeks is safe and recovery is faster.
Communities spend millions of dollars to pick up, shelter, treat, try to place and euthanize unwanted animals. Unwanted animals on the streets suffer from sickness, hunger, abuse, and often cause accidents. The toll in misery is enormous.
A community that adopts instead of breeds is a more humane, safer and richer place. Low cost spaying and neutering services are abundantly available. Check the internet or directories for a Veterinarian near your home or call one of our Partners SNPLA at (562) 942-2640.
