I just tell them the truth about all those millions of animals that are killed in shelters or on the streets every year because of irresponsible people not spaying or neutering their animals.

Tell them directly that there is a high mortality rate with dogs and cats failing to be desexed.Ie mso end up killed in pounds/animal shelters.Supply far ouweighs demand.
Inform them that responsible owners spay and neuter their pets.

Good article. Anyone who has a problem understanding why dogs and cats should be fixed probably shouldn't have pets.

Everyone I know spays and neuters their pets and works tirelessly to tell others of the benefits of doing this.

My pet is neutered. I think often it is also an act of responsibility. Allowing pets to breed indiscriminately is the same thing as condemning their puppies to shelters that often can not afford to treat an animal with dignity.

If you actually care about animals, you always sterilize your pets, you always adopt them from shelters, and you never buy them from breeders.
