Expected to continue through spring 2012, the ASPCA’s project will track the number of New York City’s abandoned animals before and after spay/neuter.
Cat and dog owners, as well as rescuers of free-roaming cats, are invited to bring their animals to one of ASPCA’s mobile spay/neuter clinics or to its newly established stationary spay/neuter clinic in Glendale, Queens, for low-cost or free spaying and neutering.

“This is the first time anyone has attempted to chart the efficacy of spay/neuter in New York City by tracking the number of abandoned animals before and after spay/neuter,” said Aimee Christian, vice president of spay/neuter operations for the ASPCA. “We hope this effort will have measurable and sustainable benefits for the entire community.”

The project, which is expected to continue through at least spring 2012, is in full partnership with the Mayor’s Alliance for New York City’s Animals and Animal Care & Control of New York City.

The ASPCA said that it welcomes other spay/neuter or animal welfare organizations that are interested in collaborating on this project to contact ASPCA Spay/Neuter Operations

Well, I think it works. I don't know of any neutered animal ever having offspring!
