Why spay or neuter?

In addition to helping reduce pet overpopulation, when you spay or neuter (“fix”), you also protect your pet’s health. This ensures they can enjoy a long and happy life with you and your family:

Neuter (Males)

  • Reduces the risk of territorial marking
  • Decreases undesired behaviors, like dog aggression
  • Eliminates risk of testicular cancer and lowers incidents of prostate disease
  • Reduces the desire to roam, which could result in injury by motorists or other animals

Spay (Females)

  • No heat cycles, which reduces an intact male’s attraction to your lovely girl
  • Reduces the desire to roam
  • Decreases the risk of mammary gland tumors, and ovarian, and uterine cancers—especially if done before the first heat cycle

Show some love and Snip Your Pit

An affordable ‘fix’ for your dog

BAPBR supports your decision to protect your pet's health. With the “Snip Your Pit” Program, your dog or puppy (over 12 weeks old) can receive comprehensive spay and neuter services.

Please consider a "pay it forward" donation so that we can help others in the same way we are helping you. This donation, in any amount, helps us continue our efforts into the future for other families that need our assitance. To make an optional donation to the program, click here.
