According to the Humane Society of the United States, for every human born today in the United States, 45 cats and 15 dogs will be born. Six to eight million will end up in shelters. (aprox. 25 % pure bred – 55% unaltered). Over half will be euthanized because there simply aren’t enough homes. If you have not sterilized your pet and it has a litter(s), every home found for one of your pet’s offspring takes a home away from an animal waiting in a shelter.
Countless homeless animals that never make it into shelters scratch out a miserable existence on the streets. Abandoned, they will suffer from illness and injury or fall prey to abuse. Before dying, they will produce more unwanted litters for which there are no homes. In addition they can become potential threats to public health and safety.
By sterilizing your pet you will be doing your part to prevent the number one cause for death and suffering in cats and dogs: pet overpopulation. Won’t you please be a part of the solution!
If you have an un-altered animal please contact your veterinarian today to make an appointment to sterilize them. If your current financial situation prevents you from doing so and you are seeking an affordable alternative, please look into All About Animals Rescue’s Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic located in Warren MI.

AAAR offers incredibly reasonable prices to enable people to affordably sterilize their companion animals. The fee is $40 for cats and $80 for dogs. AAAR also has subsidy programs for low-income owners who cannot afford the surgery fee and offers special discount packages on basic vaccines and heartworm testing. In addition, AAAR performs low-cost sterilization for feral cats to facilitate trap neuter and release ( TNR), thus providing an alternative to euthanasia for these special needs animals.
