Great Idea ! Now let's do the same thing to those on County Welfare; If they continue to breed ! Neuter the Male Stud, and Spay the Female Bitch ! Save the tax payers money. Legal Tax Payers are tired of paying for the Welfare Breeders on City, county, state, or Federal Welfare ! Deport all the Illegals, and please include the Anchor Making Mothers and their kids !

Exactly Al, how can "low income" afford to have pets if they have to get everything for free?

I am low income, I rescued a dog from the pound, it was $110.00, then when my pup was old enough, another 150 for the neuter, got 70 bucks back from the pound for neutering my dog. Never again will I have my dogs cut, the chemical they use to sedate the animals really messes with the animal if you are in the proccess of training. NEVER AGAIN!

We have four toy poodles, one male and three females, all were spayed or neutered at six months with no complications. They are happy little companions and the only thing they think about is playing and begging for treats.

I think it would be cost effective for the County to provide free spay and neutering for all cats and dogs. I believe this would lead to less euthanizing of animals at the pound.

your poodles are not working dogs. 99% of the puppies from the pound are trainable for a job or duty along with being great companions. But I see your point lovem' and they will love you.

Farmer, it's possible that the dog you had neutered is a breed that cannot handle the pre-anesthetic normally administered before a spay/neuter. Unfortunately, I have seen this happen on several occasions myself. Side affects for those dogs affected may be seizures and/or aggression. There is complete documentation on several websites. Please don't let your bad experience affect your current and/or future dogs. Most dogs entering a shelter are males, unaltered, and following their hormones. I'm sorry for your bad experience. Yours, unfortunately for you, is the exception, not the rule.

Farmer sounds like you wouldn't be low income if you focused on providing for yourself then for dogs from the pound. Hope my tax supplied welfare didn't pay for that dog.
