- Mandatory spay/neuter results in increased shelter intakes and deaths wherever it has been tried.
- Existing leash and confinement laws should be enforced to effectively reduce shelter numbers.
- Attempts to single out certain breeds are both impractical and unfair to responsible owners.
- Breed-specific legislation has been successfully challenged and overturned in courts.
- A mandatory spay and neuter law against "pit bulls" cannot be adequately enforced as "pit bull" is not a breed of dog. Animal control officers would be charged with making subjective determinations as to a dog's breed thus opening municipalities to liability in the event of false identification.
