You’re not alone. Most unplanned litters are born because pet owners don’t realize that ‘babies’ can have babies of their own. Female dogs can breed as early as six months and cats as early as four months.
Did you know that female dogs can breed twice a year with litters of 6-10 puppies? Cats can breed three times a year with an average of 4 kittens per litter.
The answer to accidental litters and pet overpopulation is to spay or neuter your pets. It is recommended to spay or neuter your pets at five months.
But it’s never too late to ask for help.
