Re: Simple solution to reduce animal control costs and cruelty cases throughout United Kingdom: This will *not* cost the government: Animal Cruelty/ordinance Violation surcharge, to help alleviate the homeless animal overpopulation problem.
For each and every animal cruelty and/or animal ordinance violation, attach 18£'s per individual charge, to fund affordable spay/neuter programs. This will save millions of little lives and prevent animal cruelty with the attraction of affordable costs of spay/neutering of one's pet.
Millions of stray and feral cats and dogs in the United Kingdom: Apart from the health issues, these animals are prone to cruelty as nobody watches out for them, which when reported is expensive to law enforcement to investigate; it's sad they are small, frightened, nowhere to go, vulnerable, always hungry and cold. We tire of seeing cat and dog carcasses on our highways and roads.
People also can be attacked by stray dogs. Spay/neutering prevents reproductive cancers and reduce incidences of dog bites.
I must emphasize this intervention will cost the Government nothing.
Thank you for your time and assistance.
