Love Your Animal Companion? Spay or Neuter
Ozzie, my four-month old Rottweiler peered up at me with his big brown eyes, as I temporarily left him for a very important surgical procedure. As much as it broke my heart to drop off my "baby" at the local humane society, I know it was the responsible thing to do.
What Ozzie doesn't know is that today is the first day of the rest of his life. He is being neutered.
Being a rescue volunteer, I've acquired a rather large brood of dogs into my family circle. Having adopted six boys and two girls of the canine species, I've come to complete understanding of the importance of spaying and neutering our furry companions.
Persons who come in contact with me and my animals will ask, "how can you spay and neuter these beautiful animals? You could breed them and make a profit."
When I encounter these folks, I tend to get a little testy and become a bit wordy with an explanation to the multiple reasons behind my choice as a responsible pet owner:
When I was younger, I used to watch Bob Barker's "The Price is Right" on television. At the end of each and every show, I candidly recall Mr. Barker reiterating, "Help control the pet population, have your pets spayed or neutered today." What a profound and responsible statement that is. You see, if you do your part by helping control the pet population, you may just save a life. Do you love your animal companion(s)? I do.
