Ian Somerhalder, actor on the TV show, “The Vampire Diaries,” sent out a tweet and an Instagram pic of his rescued pup, Nietzsche, who is scheduled to be spayed today. His message reads:

“Pls send some positive vibes for my little girl, Nietzsche who goes under the knife to be Spayed in a few minutes!STOP OVERPOPULATION-SPAY AND NEUTER Thank you!”

According to the ASPCA, Nietzsche’s spaying means a healthier life for her. The organization says that spaying prevents a female dog of getting breast cancer or uterine infections, of which 50% of cases are fatal. The thought that spaying can cause excessive weight gain in a dog has been proven a myth. And of course, spaying and neutering directly reduces pet overpopulation. Unplanned litters from unaltered pets can contribute to strays suffering on the streets or animals suffering (long- or short-term) in animal shelters.

Many cities across the country offer low- or no-cost spay & neutering. To find a program near you, check this locator on the ASPCA’s website.

Thank you, Ian Somerhalder, for being a responsible pet parent, and best wishes to Nietzsche!
