Preventing the birth of unwanted animals is a major goal of Citizens for Animal Protection. Last year irresponsible individuals in the Houston Area were responsible for the destruction of many thousands of cats and dogs - no one wanted them. In addition, thousands of abandoned animals died on city streets and freeways ... a slow, agonizing death from injuries, starvation or disease.
Clearly, prevention is kinder than destruction. Since every birth eventually has the possibility of leading to thousands of unwanted offspring, CAP actively promotes public awareness of the necessity for spaying and neutering pets.
To this end, CAP works with a variety of low cost, spay/neuter and wellness clinics, in addition to area veterinarians, to promote the importance of vaccinations, heartworm preventative care and spay/neuter which will ensure that all animals enjoy a long and healthy life.
See our Spay / Neuter - Myths & Benefits article in our Education section for more information on the benefits and value of performing this simple and important medical procedure on your companion animal.
