    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Why do some cats have a 'V' notch in their ear?

    • A.

      To identify that they are sterilized

    • B.

      To identify that they are owned

    • C.

      Due to being in a cat fight

    Correct Answer
    A. To identify that they are sterilized
    Explanation
    Cats, usually feral cats, that are spayed or neutered have a 'V' notch in their ears. This is done to prevent re-trapping and the unnecessary surgery of an already sterilized cat. A notched right ear indicates the cat is female, a notched left ear indicates the cat is male.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    What undesirable behaviors are reduced when your pet is spayed or neutered?

    • A.

      Marking and spraying

    • B.

      Aggression

    • C.

      Roaming

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the above. Unsterilized cats and dogs frequently mark with urine, creating an unpleasant smell and unsanitary conditions in your home. Most dog bites involve dogs who are not sterilized. The urge to find a mate and roam can lead to the escape of your pet, increasing their vulnerability of becoming lost or injured.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The one-time cost for sterilizing a pet is small in comparison to the cost of caring for a litter.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    True. While the surgery can seem expensive, this one-time cost is substantially less than financing the cost of care for a litter of kittens or puppies. There are options to assist pet owners. Neuter Now certificates, available at Satellite City Hall and the Hawaiian Humane Society, provide reduced sterilization fees at participating veterinary clinics. You can also adopt from a local shelter or rescue group whose animals are already neutered.

  • 13. 

    Is the Hawaiian Humane Society part of a national organization?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    No. All humane societies are completely independent from one another and are not affiliated. With no national parent organization, Hawaiian Humane Society is an independent, local organization help local animals and people that does not receive any funding from organizations with a similar name. All your donations stay local to help animals in Hawaii.
