Attention everyone, it’s National Desexing Month!
Around 200,000 cats and dogs are put down in Australia every year. That’s roughly 23 animals put down every hour of every day. And in America it’s even worse. When we adopt from shelters most of the time the animals aren’t desexed. Usually it’s due to being too expensive or not considered important. Are you one of these people in Australia? Then NDN(National Desexing Network) has got a great deal!
For the whole of July they are offering cheaper desexing for cats and dogs! We need to spread the word! Share these pictures below on Facebook or Twitter, your relatives and friends, on your bag, your car, your forehead!
Even if you are in America, having desexed pets is vital! Everywhere in the world, desexed pets are very important! In other countries you may not be able to share these images, but there are plenty of other images on the internet. Or take some time and design a poster. Every pet should be desexed! Here are the benefits of desexed pets:
*Have reduced risk of getting cancer or other diseases of the reproductive organs.
*Generally live longer and healthier lives.
*Are less prone to wander, fight, and are less likely to get lost or injured.
*Are less likely to display territorial behaviour such as spraying indoors.
*Less likely to suffer from anti-social behaviors. They become more affectionate and become better companions.
If you have desexed pets there is no need to find homes for unwanted or unexpected litters of puppies or kittens either.
So what are you waiting for, get your pet desexed today!
