Why is it important to spay and/or neuter your pet?

If you've decided to adopt from our shelter, you may already be aware of the serious problem of animal overpopulation. There are more animals born daily than there are homes to take them in.  Butte Humane Society would like to thank you for doing your part in controlling pet overpopulation in Butte County by spaying and neutering your animals.

Butte Humane Society strongly encourages spay/neuter for anyone with an unaltered pet that is allowed to roam outdoors. BHS also encourages people to help take responsibility for the stray animals in their neighborhood by having them spayed/neutered.
