Everyone loves puppies and kittens
and wants to help save them.
And how can one person save 100 puppies and kittens?? 
 By fixing just one animal.

That is right…fixing just one cat or dog will save hundreds of puppies and kittens.

Everyday, in the US, there are 10,000 babies born…and 70,000 puppies and kittens born. Every day!! Do the math…there are not enough homes

 Stop Pet Overpopulation Today! 

SPOT (Stop Pet Overpopulation Today) is Sevier County Humane Society’s low
cost spay/neuter program and in 2014, we assisted with the sterilization of over 1000 pets, preventing approximately 4000 births of unwanted puppies and kittens.

We are working hard to bring affordable spay/neuter options to the residents of Sevier County and the pets they love. Responsible pet owners are taking full advantage of this program and to you folks we say, ‘THANK YOU’!!

Thank you for being a big part of the solution to the pet overpopulation.

Because of responsible owners who have their pets fixed, fewer litters of unwanted puppies and kittens are being turned into the shelter and fewer puppies and kittens, dogs and cats are being put down because there are not enough homes.

1. Fights pet overpopulation. 
Every year, millions of cats & dogs of all ages/breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that can be prevented by spaying or neutering. 

2. Spaying your female pets provides health benefits.  
Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast cancer which is fatal in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. 

3. Neutering your male pets provides health benefits. 
Neutering your male pet helps prevent cancer and decreases prostate problems, tumors and hernias. 

4. Your spayed female won’t go into heat. 
Female cats usually go into heat 4 to 5 days every 3 weeks during breeding season. In an effort to advertise for mates, they’ll yowl and urinate frequently – sometimes all over the house! 

5. Your male dog/cat won’t roam in search of mates. 
An unneutered male will do just about anything to find a mate! That includes digging under a fence and making like Houdini to escape from the house. Once free, he risks injury in traffic and in fights with other male dogs/cats. 

6. Your neutered male pet will be better behaved. 
Neutered cats and dogs focus their attention on their humane families. Unneutered dogs and cats may mark their territory by spraying strong-smelling urine around the house/yard. Neutering can reduce aggression problems in pets. 

7. Spaying/neutering will NOT make your pet fat.  
Don’t use that old excuse!! Lack of exercise and overfeeding will cause your pet to pack on the extra pounds – not neutering. 

8. It is highly cost-effective. 
The cost of your pet’s spay/neuter surgery is a lot less than the cost of having and caring for a litter or the cost of treatment when your unneutered tom cat or male dog escapes and gets into a fight. 

9. It’s good for your pet and your community. 
Stray animals pose a real problem in many parts of the country. They can prey on wildlife, cause car accidents, frighten children. Altering pets packs a powerful punch in reducing the number of animals on the streets. 

10: Your pet doesn’t need to have a litter for your children to learn about the miracle of birth.  
There are books/videos available to teach your children about birth in a responsible way – especially when so many unwanted animals end up in shelters. 

Our SPOT program holds multiple spay/neuter events each month with transports and a mobile spay/neuter unit. We will work with you to find a date that fits your schedule.
