Hi Group,

I am writing seeking help with a math problem. I am math ignorant. I volunteer at spay/neuter clinics to try and cut down on the puppy/kitten population. I would like to get a math formula to show our efforts as we move forward.

Given the following information can anyone create a spread sheet with formulas so if we enter 48 cats* or 71 dogs it would calculate the totals births prevented. It does not have to precise but maybe with in 10% +/- even 50% survival rate.

Given the following info.

Why is spaying and neutering important?
Did you know that:

In 7 years, 1 unspayed female dog and her offspring can produce over 4,000 dogs?

In 9 years, 1 unspayed female cat, her unneutered mate, and all their offspring can produce over 11,606,077 cats?

To put it simply, spaying and neutering reduces the population of unwanted and homeless animals in the world.
