Spay & Neuter
Neutered and spayed pets are healthier, calmer, and less apt to roam. They are a much better companion animal. More neutered pets mean fewer unwanted puppies and kittens, and therefore more available good homes. Neutering also help decrease or eliminate aggressive male behavior, such as mounting, marking with urine, and roaming. The ideal age we recommend for your pet to be fixed is between the ages of 4 to 6 months old.
We find fixed pets to be better companions and at less risk for health problems.

Pet Identification / Microchip
Pets often get lost over holiday weekends and during moves. Especially for dogs, the 4th of July holidays are when the most pets are lost.
Only 18% of dogs and less than 2% of cats that come into the Orange County Animal Shelter have some form of identification. This is one of the main reasons for the high rates of euthanasia at shelters. The shelter estimates that 70% of dogs with IDs and 27% of cats are returned to their owner. Identifications greatly increases the chances of pets being reunited with their owners!
Recommended Pet Identifications:
- Registered microchip with more than one phone number
- Pet tag with more than one phone number
- Pet collar with phone number printed on it
Keeping good identification on your pets helps them return home safely if they ever get lost.
