We are 100% for sterilisation!
Why? Because we don’t want to ‘rescue’. We want all the animals that arrive on this earth to be wanted and not discarded like trash.
Some people hesitate to sterilise their pet, fearing that it will be painful. Or sometimes they wonder what the actual benefits are. We’re here to help clear up some of the confusion. But first,
LET’s talk about SEX and PENIS AND VAGINA CANCER!
We’re not going to ‘beat around the bush’ about this topic because for us here at Mission Paws’ible, the number of vagina and penis cancer cases are at crazy highs and it’s avoidable if your pets, free roaming or otherwise, are sterilised. It’s a fact. It is infecting 1000 of dogs on this tiny island. It is causing horrendously painful deaths or treatment plans that are not only costly to rescuers (or owners) but diabolical to the health and well being of your pet. It is called TVT and you need to know about it!
TVT Cancer is: Canine transmissible venereal tumour (CTVT), also known as transmissible venereal tumour (TVT) or Sticker’s sarcoma, is a transmissible cancer that affects dogs. CTVT is spread by the transfer of living cancer cells between dogs, usually during mating.
