California Assembly Passes Spay, Neuter Bill

California’s State Assembly narrowly passed the Healthy Pets Act (AB 1634) on Wednesday.

California’s State Assembly narrowly passed the Healthy Pets Act (AB 1634) on Wednesday, which would set statewide spay and neuter laws for cats and dogs over 4 months old. Some exceptions are made for those that request a permit for service and show animals.

The 41 to 38 in favor vote means it now goes to the state Senate for consideration.

Supporters say the bill will reduce the number of unwanted pets in California, but opponents say the law would be too restrictive. See the full story here: http://www.petproductnews.com/headlines/California-statewide-spay-neuter-law.aspx
