Having you pets spayed or neutered as young as possible not only helps in the most obvious way - pet over-population - but also helps with other health issues as well. In addition it diminishes fighting, and roaming if your animal spends any time outdoors.
Massachusetts offers many programs to help pet owners afford this important surgery. This is not an complete list but it is an excellent place to start.
