I have mixed feelings about this type of legislation. On one hand we want to reduce the number of dogs which are killed every day due to overpopulated shelters, but I can see the point of the opposition as well.

I know there are some real health concerns with spay/neuter. Although most vets say that the procedure has positive health outcomes. There is information which points to the contrary.

Perhaps we should focus on eliminating back yard breeders instead by making it illegal to sell dogs and cats. Maybe we should create a licence which one needs to get to become an authorized breeder. If we cut the monetary incentive, the problem will solve itself. Just my two cents.

Most veterinary organizations do NOT support mandatory spay/neuter.

As long as people are willing to pay $2,000 for a puppy mill dog, they will continue to exist.
