Pasadena City Council Approves Spaying and Neutering of all Cats and Dogs

Pasadena City Council has approved a measure requiring all dogs and cats over four months old to be spayed or neutered.
The ordinance, which was recommended by the Pasadena Humane Society and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), would exempt animals which might be seriously harmed by the procedure as well as service dogs and dogs which are used for show or breeding purposes.
While the City does not license cats, the penalty for unaltered dogs will be $60 more than the license fee for spayed or neutered ones..
Elizabeth Richard Campa of the Pasadena Humane Society told the council that as a result of passing this ordinance “the shelter can expect an immediate reduction in the number of puppies and kittens left there.”
