Spay and neuter programs are doing a great service to control the population of cats and dogs and to reduce the vast numbers of animals that are killed because they don’t have homes.
Besides the regular spay and neuter efforts of veterinarians, we get many calls from volunteers putting on community-wide programs needing temporary animal IDs. These dedicated animal lovers are spreading the word about the value of spay and neuter in addition to increasing the number of animals that won’t reproduce.
If you’re part of the community of veterinary hospitals, you know the benefits of the procedure, not only in controlling population, but improving the health prospects for the animals that have been sterilized. Their lives are made better by reducing the chances for various diseases, including uterine infections and breast cancer in females and testicular cancer in males.
Word of the value is spreading, not only in the U.S., but around the world. For instance, we’re proud to have been of help to the Spay Mexico program and their major spay and neuter clinics.
Spay Mexico used TabBand Max animal IDs in several of its Spay 1,000 programs, including the ones you see in the pictures here. As you can tell from the name, they neuter 1,000 animals in each of the programs.
Each of the animals was identified with a TabBand Max temporary identification collar in pink or blue (designating the gender of the animal), to make sure that all 1,000 made it home to the right owners.
