I am FOR it and my dogs have all been spayed.
For me, it's to assure, really really know, that NEVER will a dog I have be responsible for a pup that ends up in a shelter. Cause I know that though I may be ever so careful, once a puppy is out of my hands, I can't be 100% sure the new owner is going to keep their part of the bargain. And even if that puppy is in a 'good' home for it's life, what about if THEY breed it (on purpose or accidentally) and so on.
The only way I know that NEVER will any dog under my responsiblity end up in a shelter or horrible home is by spaying/neutering. So I do.
And bless all the great responsible breeders who are able to weed out good owners from bad, keep track of all the pups forever, give out LIMITED registration to help prevent unregistered litters from coming about.
And bless everyone that gets their dogs from a shelter or rescue!
