Spayed and neutered animals make better companions and generally face reduced health costs. Neutered pets are less aggressive and less prone to wander. It makes sense for pet owners to spay and neuter for health and for economic reasons.
Animal control intake numbers escalate on average by 13% yearly.
As a consequence, a constant increase in the number of euthanized adoptable dogs and cats result. The more rural and less affluent counties exhibit larger intake at animal control facilities and experience significantly higher euthanasia rates. In the nine-county region of CAC's focus, four of the counties fall into the lowest percentile in the State in their respective populations living at or below the poverty level.
There is incontrovertible evidence of the benefits that result from affordable spay/neuter programs as they exist in other areas of North Carolina and the U.S.
These statistics provide support that affordable spay/neuter both helps in reducing companion animal overpopulation and saves communities valuable tax dollars. In our operating area, counties spend from two to three times the cost of a spay/neuter to euthanize a companion animal because there are simply not enough adoption options to address theincreasingly large numbers of animals surrendered to animal control agencies.
