First and foremost, sterilizing your community dogs will help them live a longer and healthier life. Spaying and neutering reduces, or can even eliminate, a number of health problems that are difficult and/or expensive to treat. By neutering male animals, you help prevent testicular cancer and prostate problems. Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors in female animals.
Sterilization can help change unwanted behavior from your community animals. For example, some aggression problems in male animals can be avoided by early neutering. Your male dog will be less likely to chase cars, preventing potential accidents or fights with other males.
Neutered dogs will be less likely to mark their territory by spraying strong-smelling urine all over the street. They will be less likely to mount other dogs, people, and objects.
By spaying your female animals, they will no longer go into heat. This will help stop a number of undesirable behavior in both males and female animals. In females, it is common for them to urinate more frequently in attempt to attract males. They often will get blood on the roads, exhibit nervous behavior, and attract unwanted males to your area. Males are capable of doing almost anything to find a mate or enter the area where the female is in heat.
Spaying and neutering your community dogs helps your community by preventing the birth of unwanted animals.
Communities and animal shelters spend millions of dollars to control unwanted dogs. Shelters are overburdened with animals, and some shelters euthanize their dogs after a certain time period to allow for more. Stray dogs and cats can cause issues in your neighborhood by getting into trash, spreading diseases, and displaying potentially aggressive behavior if not neutered.
The cost of a sterilization surgery is a lot less than having to care for a litter. Sterilization also costs much less than the cost of potential treatments from health complications in the future!
Consider this: One pair of un-sterilized dogs, with their offspring, can result in 67,000 puppies in 7 years.
