Fort Myers humane societies, animal rescue groups, animal shelters, veterinarians, and informed pet owners are nearly unanimous in their support for the early spaying and neutering of dogs and cats. Local animal shelters are overwhelmed with excessive overpopulation throughout the animal rescue system, both government and private organizations are struggling with overcrowding in their facilities and diminishing budgets.
