March Themes

Fix Your Pet Month

March is Fix Your Pet month and the Ontario SPCA is encouraging the public to spay or neuter their pets and help reduce the number of unwanted animals in their communities.

Every year, tens of thousands of dogs and cats end up on the streets, where they fall victim to neglect and abuse, or in shelters in search of new homes. Protecting your pet, by having them spayed or neutered, can help reduce that number and make Ontario a safer place for our pets.
Spaying or neutering pets may also reduce health risks and improve behaviour in your pet. Fixed pets are also less likely to roam, reducing the risk of injury, accident and loss.
  • Visit and take the pledge saying you have or will be fixing your pet.
  • Help spread the word about the importance of fixing your pet through your social channels and encourage them to #FixYourPet – it’s the kindest thing you can do.
