Am I required to spay/neuter my pets?
Spaying and neutering has many benefits to your pet including reducing marking, aggression, and roaming as well as reducing cancer risk and increasing life span! It’s also essential to maintaining a manageable pet population in our community, which is why dogs and cats over 4 months of age in Clovis are required to be spayed or neutered, with some exemptions.
