While neutering isn’t always suitable for every pet, it is recommended by many animal welfare organisations. Not only can spaying and/or neutering provide physical health benefits for your pet, but it prevents conception of unwanted litters and in turn, animal homelessness.

The French Revolution: 2021’s Hottest Dog

What is 2021’s Top Dog?
