When I bred and showed, I always offered a part refund if the owners came back with the puppy at a later dtae ... before being old enough to breed ... with proof that it had been desexed. Very few didn't take up this offer ... except for the ones that were being shown. This was in the days when they ahd to be around 6 months old before a vet would operate. Glad that things have changed. Both my present kittencats were desexed at 6 weeks.

Thanks Simone, for posting this article. It needs as much publicity as possible!
Many communities have programs to assist folks in paying for the spay/neuter surgery.
It helps to talk to people directly about it.

Thanks for spreading the word on this. If we could reduce the pet over-population problem, we could also greatly reduce the number of unwanted animals that end up being euthanized in our city pounds. Even when accidental breeders insist that they've found homes for all their babies, that only means that those adopters did NOT rescue from a shelter. Regardless, there simply are not enough homes for all the animals being borne in the world.

Here in Queensland, Australia, the RSPCA is pushing the state government to have a 5 year compulsory desexing of cats, to try and get the problem under control.
