Mandatory spay neuter laws fail everywhere. I am glad that the people of my former state have common sense. I am proud of them!!!

Yes, all pets should be spayed-neutered unless they're intended to be bred, or an unaltered temperament is needed, but when you make it into law, you get all sorts of
problems.

Owners don't take their animals in for vet care, because they don't want to be fined for not having an altered animal, and thus animal health wanes, vet prices rise, and you have an even worse overpopulation
problem.

Also, there are fewer responsible breeders for an owner to turn to, plus, the breeding charges rise, and the prices for puppies and kittens become exorbitant. Therefore people get "purebred" animals from a puppy mill or pet store, where the animals are abused and uncared for, and they're more likely "moonshine dogs/cats" and not really purebred at
all.

Let's not forget the shelters. They're the ones who are really going to suffer. When vet bills go up, adoption fees go up, and fewer people will adopt. Fewer adoptions = more animals being put down. So what's intended to help the animals ends up in one big mess, and it's all the our fault, because no one took the time to think through an
issue.

What we really need is an organization in place that monitors breeders, and keeps them from abusing and over-breeding their dogs. If we required a paper trail for every dog, purebred or not, that was randomly checked out, fewer people would chance severe fines or jail time in milling dogs and cats.

I think all pets should be "fixed" unless they're legit breeding pets.
