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 12,000 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.
IT IS HEALTHIER FOR YOUR PET TO BE FIXED
- Fixed pets live longer.
- Male cats will not spray as much.
- Dogs will not roam away from home as much to find a mate.
- Reduced rates of cancer and other serious health problems.
UNFIXED PETS ARE ILLEGAL IN LONG BEACH
As of October 2015, Long Beach has a mandatory/spay neuter law and many other cities have similar laws. 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.
OUR SHELTER NUMBERS ARE DOWN!
Make sure your register or update your pet’s microchip at www.Found.Org
LICENSE YOUR PET
Municipal law requires that all cats over the age of four months be licensed as rabies control. Additionally, making sure your pet has its current license attached to its collar will help ensure your pet is returned to you in the event it is lost and ends up in a shelter.
Please see the city of Long Beach website (www.longbeach.gov/acs) for licensing requirements.
