Jenni s a 3-year-old Terrier Mix who was transferred to the Humane Society of West Michigan about two weeks ago. She loves to cuddle and is extremely treat motivated (like myself LOL). It's unknown how she does with other animals but you can always do a dog-to-dog meeting if you have one at home already.

Spay/Neuter Awareness Month
February is National Spay/Neuter Awareness Month. 
  1. Pets are healthier when they are spayed/neutered. Spaying eliminates the constant crying and nervous pacing as well as the periods that dogs and cats can have while in heat. Neutering stops the mating drive in males, reducing the urge to roam, which in turn, reduces the risks of fights, injury, poisoning, accidents, and contracting diseases. If you have more than one pet in your home, all the pets will get along better if they are spayed or neutered.
  2. Spaying/neutering helps the overpopulation of dogs and cats. 
  3. Keeps your pets calmer.
