Why is spaying and neutering so important?

In 2010, over 3,500 cats were euthanized at the Martinez shelter. There are two reasons that many were killed.

1. There are too many  adoptable  cats born in Contra Costa county and not enough homes to adopt them each year.

 2. There are too many feral and homeless cats on the street. At the shelter, if labeled untreatable/ unadoptable they are killed. (some of these are friendly but so scared that they are labeled feral and therefore "unadoptable").
