Spaying/Neutering Informational

Greetings from Lifeline Puppy Rescue!

We hope you are enjoying your new puppy that was recently adopted from Lifeline Puppy Rescue! Just a reminder that your 90 day spay/neuter requirementdate is approaching. Below are some frequently asked questions about the spaying/neutering process:

Why is it so Important to Spay/Neuter My Dog?

 There are many benefits to spaying and neutering your dog from behavioral to medical. Spaying and Neutering can be known to:

  • Prevent certain life-threatening diseases such as uterine infections and breast tumors (which are 50% malignant or cancerous) in females and testicular cancer and prostate problems in males.
  • Decrease aggression in males as intact males are more prone to mounting and aggressive behaviors.
  • Protect your house from males that are more likely to mark if they are not neutered.
  • Prevent heat cycles for females which cause more frequent urination in households.
  • Deters males from finding creative ways to escape. Intact males often will leave their yard or house in search of a female dog.

What Documents Do I Need to Provide to Redeem My $50.00 Spay/Neuter Deposit?

  • Please e-mail lifelinepuppyrescue@yahoo.com a copy of your spay/neuter certificate or paid invoice to verify that your puppy’s procedure has been completed.
  • Upon our reception of this information, you will be able to redeem your $50 spay/neuter deposit.
  • You do have the option to donate this deposit towards helping other rescue puppies in need; however, we still need proof of the procedure.

Update: Rescue Adoptions and COVID-19

COVID-19 ADOPTIONS UPDATE

We are closing Adoptions for this weekend (5/30)- (5/31). Please check back next week for more information on the adoptions resuming (6/6)-(6/7).

According to the CDC, there is no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 and the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to humans is low.

There are still puppies that need our help. We are doing anything we can to save puppies from euthanasia during this trying time. Please consider donating to help us get these puppies out of high-kill shelters and support the puppies in our care.
