Why Spay or Neuter your Pet

1.        You will save thousands of lives. Failing to spay/neuter is the biggest cause of the pet overpopulation, suffering and euthanasia.  Over 65,000 – the number of offspring ONE un-spayed/un-neutered dog or cat and his/her intact mate can produce in about six years if none of their offspring are spayed/neutered.
2.    There are not enough people to adopt all of the animals that are being created.  Your unwanted litter will most likely end up in a shelter where it may be killed/euthanized.
3.    Your dog or cat will be healthier and happier. Fixed dogs and cats have a longer expected lifespan and will have less chance of developing certain cancers and other life threatening illnesses.
4.    Your dog or cat will be better behaved, and less likely to roam, howl, spray and jump the fence.
5.    You will save money.  It is expensive to care for unwanted litters and the medical treatment associated (unfixed dogs and cats have more medical problems). Rabies tag/licensing fees are much lower in St. Louis City and County for fixed animals.
6.    Your pet will be less likely to attract unwanted strays to your home or property.
7.    You will eliminate female heat (menstrual) cycles and the inconvenience involved. Heat cycles can last up to four weeks.
8.    Spayed and neutered pets are more adaptable to your home and family.
9.    Spaying/neutering is a simple outpatient surgery with a quick recovery.
10.    Every litter counts.  Evidence shows that females spayed BEFORE their first heat are typically healthier.

Your Love For Companion Pets Can Carry On Long After You Are Gone

It’s true! You can make a direct impact on the lives of companion pets by gifting a portion of your estate to Carol House Quick Fix Pet Clinic in your Last Will and Testament. Simply share, with your estate planner, your desire to bequeath a monetary gift or gifts of stock to Carol House Quick Fix Pet Clinic. Your donation will allow them to continue their award-winning spay and neuter work long after you are gone. Your donation will move St. Louis closer to being a “No Needless Kill Community”.

Estate gifting is a great alternative for you to support CHQFPC when your heart says, “I want to give”, but your pocket book says, “You don’t have the money right now.” If this sounds like an opportunity for which you would want to be remembered, please let your estate planner know. Then, contact Wendy at (314) 771-PETS, so you can be recognized as one of our “Fur-ever Friends”.

It is our hope that your gift will not be actualized for a long time, but when the time does arrive CHQFPC will use your legacy of love to make the lives of cats and dogs a whole lot better here on earth!
