Why are spaying and neutering so important in Ukraine?

The spaying and neutering of dogs and cats are essential steps to promote the well-being of animals and society as a whole in Ukraine. These measures have far-reaching positive effects on the animal population, public health, and the coexistence of humans and animals. Here are some reasons why it is crucial to spay and neuter dogs and cats in Ukraine:

Control of the animal population: Ukraine is faced with an enormous number of stray dogs and cats. Spaying and neutering reduce uncontrolled reproduction, leading to a decrease in the number of stray animals. This helps minimize the suffering of the animals.

Improvement of animal welfare: Stray animals are often in poor health and lead difficult lives on the streets. Spaying and neutering not only reduce the number of animals but also improve the individual well-being of these animals by minimizing diseases, territorial fights, and competition for food sources.

Reduction of animal welfare issues: The excessive population of stray animals often results in animal welfare issues, including neglect, abuse, and a lack of medical care. Spaying and neutering help mitigate these problems and promote awareness of responsible pet ownership.

Relief for animal shelters: Animal shelters and rescue centers are frequently overcrowded and cannot adequately care for all stray animals. Spaying and neutering reduce the influx of animals into these facilities, allowing shelters to better care for the animals already in their care.
