The importance of spaying and neutering pets is highlighted on World Spay Day.
Finding loving homes for homeless pets is one of Michigan Humane's missions. It's worth noting, though, that one of the causes for the high number of homeless animals is that many dogs haven't been spayed or neutered.
On World Spay Day, Tuesday, Anna Chrisman of Michigan Humane joined Tati Amare of "Live in the D" to discuss why it's vital to have your pets spayed or neutered and how it can improve their wellness.
Chrisman stated that having your pet spayed or neutered is important since it helps avoid unwanted litters of dogs and cats. It has an impact not only on the pet and the household, but also on Michigan Humane, which is trying to care for infants and find them homes.
In both males and females, spaying or neutering pets helps to prevent certain cancers and infections.
