Info from"The Humane Society of the United States" website.

"As a nation, we claim to love cats and dogs. Millions of households have pets, and billions of dollars are spent yearly on pet supplies and food. But as a nation, we should take a hard, sobering look at a different annual statistic: the millions of dogs and cats given up to shelters or left to die on the streets. And the numbers tell only half the story. Want expert advice about living with pets?

Every cat or dog who dies as a result of pet overpopulation—whether humanely in a shelter or by injury, disease, or neglect—is an animal who, more often than not, would have made a wonderful companion, if given the chance. Tremendous as the problem of pet overpopulation is, it can be solved if each of us takes just one small step, starting with not allowing our animals to breed. Here's information about this crisis and why spaying and neutering is the first step to a solution."

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.

Well, it's either neutering or putting living animals to sleep(giving them lethal injection, that is). First option is clearly more humane.
