Did you know that a female cat can go into heat when she is only six months old, have three litters of kittens in one year and go into heat again before her milk dries up from the last litter? Or that a female dog can have two litters of pups in one year?
Only YOU can keep your pet from getting pregnant. Please spay or neuter your companion animals!
