Petitioning Arkansas State Legislature

Arkansas State Legislature: Drop HB2160; Mandatory Spay/Neuter is Ineffective; Low-Cost Spay/Neuter is the Answer

HB2160 would require pet owners to sterilize their mixed-breed dogs and cats by the time they are six months old. Mandatory Spay/Neuter laws are ineffective. They hurt poor and low-income pet owners and their pets, discourage pet ownership, and empower animal control agencies to impound and kill more pets. The answer is not punitive legislation like mandatory spay/neuter laws. The answer is to implement policies and programs that make high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter programs widely available.
