I am not sure if its mentioned anywhere in the links provided her, but in addition to helping control the overpopulation of animals, spaying and neutering has many health benefits for the animal. It helps reduce or eliminate certain types of cancers (ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, breast cancer (esp. if spayed before the b*tch has her first heat) and prostate cancer) and in male dogs, neutering will decrease aggressiveness and to some degree territorialness (if thats a word, cant think of the word I want). Just to name a few health benefits. There are many more health benefits to spaying and neutering. I just want to make sure everyone is aware that its not just about controlling overpopulation (though its a big part) and that there are health benefits that come with it.
