The city of Chicago is one of the many great cities in the U.S. which has great economic stability and incredible diversity. However, like many other great cities and states, Chicago also has a dog over-population problem.

Over-population is mainly due to irresponsible pet ownership and can be controlled by neutering or spaying a dog. Many of the rescue groups or shelters in the city of Chicago offer affordable and sometimes free neutering or spaying to qualifying pet owners.
