We strongly recommend that your pets are spayed or neutered. It is a health benefit to them and helps prevent pet overpopulation. Here is a link to the S.N.I.P. program in Austin, a program that provides incentives to those who have their pets spayed or neutered:

If you need information about a particular dog breed, go to

  www.AKC.org


 
If you are considering adopting a pet, we encourage you to get one from a rescue group or animal shelter. Most rescue groups have web sites (just search for the breed of interest). If you do decide to purchase from a breeder, please take the time to find a reputable breeder, visit their premises, and see the parents of the puppy or kitten. We do not recommend buying a purebred puppy or kitten from a pet store. Many of these puppies come from puppy mills (see the ASPCA home page for more information):
