Push for forced dog and cat desexing
The Local Government association and the Animal Welfare League are calling for compulsory indexing for all domestic cats and dogs unless the breeder is registered. This is an attempt to ensure responsible pet ownership and reduce the operation of back yard breeders and puppy farms. The argument continues that desexed animals tend to be less aggressive to both humans and each other. My concern for this is that it may put ownership of these pets out of the reach of many as the so called bitsas are no longer available.
