I am very glad that the bill has been stopped before even getting to the vote. It's unconstitutional and fanatical.

The AKC really does not care for dogs. Nor does any breeder who's making a profit off of breeding or private citizen who is ignorant and stupid enough to think that while there are millions of animals dying because there are not enough responsible homes for them we should continue to breed more -both on purpose and indiscriminately. Any one or any group that opposes spay and nueter laws is a fool. If you think otherwise just go to your local animal control and see all the animals that are going to die because no one wants them. Do you want to indirectly be an enabler to this horrible situation? I certainly wouldn't.

And, last but not least, there is nothing "risky" or " unsafe" concerning spaying and nuetering before six months. Any complications are rare and are generally the fault of the owner for not keepng the incision clean and the animal quiet. All seven of my dogs and cats were done before six months with NO problem at all. What IS risky is a dog or cat giving birth - I've seen and heard of several dying.

Hopefully the delay will allow time to further oppose this bill!!!!!


There are Valid reasons to delay spay and neuter till after 6 mos. And they don't necessarily include breeding.


Responsible owners can keep a dog intact and not allow it to
reproduce.

There are valid reasons to breed a female two seasons in a row...reasons supported by knowledgeable veterinarians.


Making the SPCA responsible for determining who has the facilities to breed a litter...that's scary! Are they going to do a home inspection on every home who applies for a permit to keep their dog intact??? Not everyone asking for the exemption has plans to breed their dog anyway.
