Don't Forget The Importance Of Getting Your Guy Or Girl Fixed!!

One of the biggest concerns I get questioned about in regards to adopting an animal is about spaying/neutering a new pet, and particularly the cost involved. I can not stress enough the importance of making sure your pet is fixed! Beyond the worry of all of a sudden realizing that your pet had a one night stand and having to incur the stress and finance of bringing a new litter into the world, there are so many other advantages to fixing your pet. There will be less aggression in many cases, and less marking/spraying of your property! Remember also that a fixed pet, a dog in particular, is much less likely to roam the neighbourhood looking for some instinctual "action", and less likely to go missing! Here is the link to Toronto Animal Services, which offers what I know to be the most reasonable rate in the city for the surgery. To all the guys out there who just can't fathom the idea of taking care of your dog's kibbles and bits, just try to think of it as early prevention, which I'm sure many of us could benefit from as well!!
