Spay-Neuter Bill Will Reduce Unwanted Animals

A bill that requires shelter animals be sterilized before adoption cleared the Indiana House and Senate with unanimous support and is on the way to Gov. Mike Pence’s desk.  House Bill 1201 is the latest effort to spay and neuter cats and dogs so the unwanted pet populations take a dive.  “We have too many animals (but) not enough homes,” said Sharon Dull, a volunteer with North Central Spay Neuter and Crystal Creek Kennels. “So any overflow, they end up in the shelters; they’re euthanized; it costs taxpayers money.”
