WHY SPAY & NEUTER
Do you know what happened to your dog’s puppies or your cat’s kittens?
Over 250,000 pets enter into Houston and surrounding area animal shelters each year including the puppies and kittens of purebred animals. More than half of these homeless pets are put to sleep. Your pet’s puppies and kittens could end up put to sleep or suffering in the streets. Spaying and neutering helps reduce the number of unwanted pets and pet deaths. If you turned in kittens or puppies into a shelter in Harris or Montgomery County, there is a 60% chance that the animals did not make it out alive.
4 out of 5 dog bites are by male dogs who are not neutered. Do you really want to lose your dog because it bit someone’s child? Do you want to be responsible for your dog hurting a child?
Spaying and neutering makes your pets much easier to live with!
Harris and Montgomery County shelters just cannot absorb accidental litters!
A kitten can get pregnant as early as 5 months of age. They will mate with brothers and sisters even from the same litter. Cats can have 4 litters of kittens per year! It is important that you spay and neuter your pets between the ages of 4 to 5 months. Aside from the many health benefits to your pet, spaying and neutering helps lower risk to the people population.
One Hundred Thousand Hearts is a documentary featuring many rescues and animal advocates trying to put an end to the 100,000 animals being killed in Houston’s shelters each year.
Filmed in Houston, Texas, featuring local veterinarians, shelter workers, rescue groups, volunteers and pet lovers discussing the critical need to spay and neuter Houston’s and America’s pet population to prevent the millions of dogs, cats, rabbits, and other companion animals killed each year due to homelessness. The statistics are local, but the message is universal.
The goal of this documentary is to raise awareness: to educate, enlighten, and encourage people to understand what is happening to pets in Houston and in America, and to learn what we can all do to change things for the better.
