Pasadena Mandatory Spay-Neuter Law: Monday, Oct. 7 City Council Mtg!
I wanted to alert you that the Pasadena City Council agenda for this coming Monday includes the draft mandatory spay neuter ordinance (the agenda was posted this evening). This is a "first reading", and essentially, THIS is the time to provide comments. As people involved in pure bred dogs in Pasadena, I strongly encourage you to read the draft ordinance and share you thoughts with City Council via email, letter or in person at the meeting if you have any concerns. There are some new measures in there that were NOT in the original staff report back in July (like what happens if an unaltered dog ends up in Pasadena Humane Society's shelter!).
While I'm not contacting you to encourage you comment one way or another on this issue, I am very concerned that not enough people involved with pure bred dogs in Pasadena are aware of this, so please share with others who might be interested. Here is some information that might be of use:
