Importance on spaying and Neutering
It is important to get your animals spayed and neutered because a large percent of dogs and cats get put down only due to over population. This is can be prevented by having your animals "fixed". It will keep more animals out of shelters and less healthy animals being put down.
The main solution to over population is spaying and neutering your animals. Yet there is another solution. Instead of people abandoning their animals or just having them put down because you have to many you could try giving it to a loving family. By creating a non-profit organization helping people find homes for their unwanted pets.
They might just be a PART of your life, but to them you are their WHOLE life. - Unknown
