Image Hosted by ImageShack.us Why the Healthy Pets Act is Needed: Every year, over 800,000 pets are abandoned in California. Aggressive stray dogs roam through many neighborhoods, increasing the danger of dog bites and the transmission of rabies. And taxpayers spend $250 million to house abandoned cats and dogs in shelters and then sadly, euthanize (kill) the majority of these pets. There is a proven approach to solve this problem: mandatory spay/neuter laws. With the wide availability of free and low-cost spay/neuter services, mandatory spay/neuter laws do not pose a financial burden for pet owners. It’s a common sense solution to the growing problem of pet overpopulation. Why should you come to the hearing: We need you to be counted in the permanent record that you support the bill, and we must outnumber the breeders and the other opposition. Our voices must be heard for the ones that are voiceless; we cannot let the special interests and the others that profit from animals beat us. It is inexcusable to continue the status quo in our state of killing over 400,000 dogs and cats per year just because we cannot find them a home, or because we cannot get ourselves to Sacramento. We don’t want to have regrets that we should have done more, we must give this our ALL. Please send this information to all supporters! Thanks!
