Spay & Neuter Services
Spay/neuter programs address overpopulation. In the efforts to eliminate suffering, animal sterilization gets to the root of the problem.
Spay/neuter programs are healthy. Sterilizing an animal increases its quality of life and health, improves behavior and eliminates unwanted births. The sterilization of animals also decreases the spread of disease.
Spay/neuter programs are humane. Spay/neuter programs greatly reduce the number of unwanted animals. This in turn greatly reduces unnecessary suffering, sickness and wrongful death. It is that simple!
- The average number of litters a fertile dog can have a year: 2
- The average number of puppies: 8
- Thus, in 6 years, 1 dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 dogs
- The average number of litters a fertile cat can have a year: 3
- The average number of kittens: 5
- Thus, in 7 years, 1 cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 cats

In the past years nearly thousands of cats and dogs have been spayed/neutered on Isla Mujeres. This represents an astronomical number of unwanted births avoided!
