The holidays are quickly approaching, and animals play an important role in them. Most likely, our family pets will get an extra treat on Thanksgiving and a special gift on Christmas. In some cases, a new pet might even be that special gift.

While there are plenty of problems facing humans, these beloved animals have needs of their own. To be kind to animals is one of the best gifts we can give them during the holidays.

But being kind to animals goes far beyond just a pat on the head. It also entails being responsible pet owners, not just during the holiday months but also year round.

One of the best things we can do for our pets is to have them spayed or neutered. That way, we won’t risk bringing unwanted animals into the world only to have them suffer and die.
