Spay Neuter Resources

Did you know…

  • Euthanasia, due to pet overpopulation, is the #1 killer of our animals? 
  • In 7 years, one female dog and her puppies can produce 67,000 new dogs! 
  • In Metro Atlanta, over 100,000 animals are put to sleep each year…that’s enough animals to fill all seats in Turner field…TWICE!

Spaying/Neutering is a simple SOLUTION to this problem. It not only helps control the animal population, but it can also save your pet’s life! You can have your pet spayed/neutered starting at 6-8 weeks old. There are many low cost options available; see the resources below or email us at for more information.


The threat of uterine and testicular cancers in dogs is real, and spaying/neutering can help reduce the risk. A female dog that has gone into heat twice has a 1 in 4 risk of developing uterine cancer. You can prevent this by getting your pet spayed before its first heat cycle (before 6 months of age).

Spaying/Neutering also:

  • Reduces marking/spraying and aggressive behaviors
  • Decreases roaming, this leads to getting hit by cars
  • Saves money by reducing the need for animal control

Please help support Mostly Mutt’s “Stop Littering” campaign by educating everyone you know about the importance of spaying/neutering. There are many people who simply “don’t know” how important it is and how it can benefit their pet and our community. A great source of information on spaying/neutering is PetSmart's People Saving Pets site. Check it out and join the movement!
