1.  My pet will get fat and lazy. Pets that become fat and lazy after being altered usually are overfed and under exercised.

2.  We want another pet just like Rover and Fluffy.  You will rarely succeed in replicating the characteristics of a particular animal. Too many animals need homes to justify breeding for purely selfish reasons (or any reason at all).

3.  My pet's personality will change.  Any change will be for the better. After alteration, pets become less aggressive towards other animals and less likely to wander. They also are less likely to mark their territory in undesirable areas, such as inside your house.

4.  We can sell puppies or kittens to make money.  Even professional breeders are lucky to break even by breeding purebreds. It is unconscionable to bring animals into an already severely overpopulated world. Any animal you find a home for will cause another to be euthanized.

5.  My children should witness the miracle of birth.  Breeding so your children can see the miracle of birth demands that they also see the tragic results.Take them to visit a shelter.

6.  I am concerned about my pet being anesthetized.  Anesthetics used today are very safe.  The medical benefits of having your pet altered far outweigh the slight risk of the anesthesia. Discuss your concerns with your vet.

Please. . .don't breed or buy while homeless pets die!
