This is a great idea. The unwanted pet population in this country is out of control and something needs to be done about it.

Anyone who is opposed to this bill should be ashamed! Just go to your local shelter and witness perfectly healthy and friendly dogs and cats (which includes plenty of kittens and puppies) get euthanized simply because they have no home. I used to manage a spay and neuter program and can tell everyone, it IS the only answer to solving this problem. It's common sense, just do the math; if you spay just one female dog or cat, you're preventing multiple litters from adding to the devastating population. It's very simple and frankly no big surprise that breeders are opposed to this because it would require special liscensing and standards for them to follow, which costs them money, dipping into their puppy profits!

It's not the responsible breeder's fault that there is pet overpopulation, but they're the ones who will be punished. You think Puppy Mills are going to be bothered by some fine or law? They're are already breaking the laws! This will just make the Puppy Millers and irresponsible breeders avoid the vet's office even more! Education is the only way to stop pet overpopulation.

I think it is so sad that it has come to this. We have this problem only because people do not spay and neuter their animals. then they end up in the gutter when a car hits them or they starve to death. if a person has a PURE-BREED dog and wants a litter or 2 a year then they can get a special tag permitting them to do so.

Breeders unite for money, now. There is money to lose. Please jump in, and help. Who cares that dogs and cats are getting killed? We are going to lose AKC registration fees. We are going to lose the ability to crank out puppies. My puppies don't end up in shelters--I am sure. Heard it all before, thousands of times. Breeders are SCUM!

The breeders will come out in all their flagrant self serving, AKC talking point best in the near future. let me predict-- this bill is unenforceable, enforce current legislation, puppies will disappear.

None of this is true. The opposition is breeders whose interest is money. Very simple. The fewer puppies, the higher number of pets killed as surplus, the fuller the coffers for AKC and the more profit for those who exploit animals for profit. This is very very simple. If you love dogs and cats support this bill. If you have money at stake, and suffering and needless killing doesn't bother you-- oppose it.

This is a TERRIBLE bill to make castration and hysterectomy mandatory. where do you suppose your next dog will come from, if you do not want a pound dog? If you love pure bred dogs or mixes, this is NOT the answer to dogs ending up in shelters. EDUCATION about dog behavior, training and care, that does NOT come from the HSUS, is the best solution, as well as low cost castration/hysterectomy programs for those who CHOOSE to have their dogs de-sexed. The hormones that are ripped away with de-sexing are needed for proper growth and development. SOME people prefer to have their dogs natural, as nature intended, WITH their sex organs intact. People CAN control their dogs' sexual activities, and de-sex the dogs at a later age if the owner chooses. Or perhaps you would like to consider de-sexing your own children and encourage adoption of unwanted children--- there are far too many unwanted children in the world.
