Proposed Fund to Help Neuter Pets

February 20th, 2008 by flanews

Pet owners who can’t afford to have their dogs spayed or neutered may soon get some help. Proposed legislation would set up a fund to pay for the operations. It would also help counties who require pet owners to spay and neuter dogs and cats. The Save a Pet Act would set up a fund of private donations to help control the animal population.

“A family that doesn’t have a lot of resources, but they want that pet for their kids or whatever at 125, 130 bucks to get it spayed or neutered, they might just try not to get it done. This would be paid to the vet to get it done, or it might go to a vet clinic or a human clinic,” said Carl Domino a republican state Representative.

Pet enthusiast Gertrude Maxwell has promised to donate thousand of dollars to start the program. Supporters of the bill said the program wouldn’t cost taxpayer a dime.
