FAQ

My vet recommended we wait until our dog is X months (or years) old. 

Every vet is different. You are adopting a rescued dog from a shelter. We have contractual obligations to provide proof of alteration from pets we rescue. 

According to the AVMA:

Early spaying of female dogs and cats can help protect them from some serious health problems later in life such as uterine infections and breast cancer. Neutering your male pet can also lessen his risk of developing benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate gland) and testicular cancer. The procedure has no effect on a pet’s intelligence or ability to learn, play, work or hunt. Some pets tend to be better behaved following surgical removal of their ovaries or testes, making them more desirable companions.
