||Dear Members & Friends,
Good greetings to all!
We are almost at Year End 2022 and getting ready to greet the New Year 2023. We just wish that our paw friends are able to sense that too. Many have asked how we fare with the current situation. We have our ups and downs and we are blessed with the many members and supporters who care and answer our needs.
We hope the New Year 2023 will bring us more cheer to help improve the state of operations at the shelter for the betterment of the animals under our care. SPCA appreciates the support and concern for animal welfare extended by all concerned. From the bottom of our hearts, we say `Thank you’.
Why is neutering of pets necessary?
We need to address the need to spay/castrate animals brought in to shelters. Many people don’t wish to understand, and get very stressed when we discuss the neutering of an animal adopted from our shelter. Some think that it is unnatural, unfair/cruel for humans to tamper with the animal's natural instinct. Neutering indeed saves lives. At the office, we are often stressed by calls daily for surrendering of pets by owners, feeders and rescuers simply because they are not able to cope with the number of animals they have cared for.
Neutering reduces the over-population of pets and the euthanasia of animals at shelters. Furthermore, it decreases the risk of gonadal and mammary tumors. Often, we hear of bitches and queens with pyometra and male dogs with prostatic tumor problems when owners request for their carcasses to be disposed. These problems can be arrested if neutering is done at an early age. It will also help reduce hormonal changes in behavior. Thus, it may increase longevity of life in pets.
