Or maybe it's the worst. What do you think?
Neutering the family pet is almost universal among people who can afford to do it. They see the benefits to the pet, and equally or maybe more important they see the benefits to themselves.
Among those who haven’t done so, they cite two reasons, they can’t afford it and they have no transportation. And please don't tell me if they can't afford it, they shouldn't have a dog. A dog can be a great comfort and companion to a child in a poor family or a homeless person. Having a dog can be a life changing experience.
Mandatory spay/neuter laws don't work wherever they are tried. Levying a fine on people who can't afford to obey the laws is cruel and results in more abandoned dogs for the shelters to deal with, not fewer.
Instead of spending money trying to enforce the unenforceable, why not offer a means to avoid unwanted litters.
Rather than punitive measures, this SPCA uses shock and humor to get attention, with a voiceover offering free service, free transportation, a happy owner and a loyal dog.
