We have an enormous animal overpopulation problem in the United States. Thousands of animals (cats & dogs) are euthanized (killed) at county animal shelters each year.
In Long Beach and Southern California, most of these animals are chihuahuas and pit bulls. By fixing (sterilizing) your animal, you will eliminate the chance of your pet getting pregnant or getting another animal pregnant.
We have fixed over 5,000 animals since our first spay/neuter event in June 2013 and are already starting to see huge reductions in the number of animals coming into our local animal shelter.
As of October 2015, Long Beach has a mandatory spay/neuter law. Cats must be fixed by 4 months old and dogs must be fixed by 6 months old.
If you are caught breaking this law, there are hefty fines.
