Animal rights group proposes bill requiring pets to get fixed

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - On February 8, 2011, the Pulaski County Quorum Court Services Committee will consider adopting a differential pet license that rewards owners who spay or neuter their pets, while penalizing those who do not. This will help solve the spiraling unwanted pet population in Pulaski County.  This single piece of legislation could potentially have a greater positive impact than anything we have accomplished this far!

This legislation will give owners a reason to spay or neuter, which will subsequently prevent thousands of dogs and cats from being euthanized in shelters each year!  It will also reduce the number of animals that die from starvation, disease, being struck by vehicles, or from being shot by frustrated property owners.  This law will also require those irresponsible pet owners who are causing this problem to pay for it.

This legislation will come before the Pulaski County Quorum Court Services Committee on February 8, 2011 at 6:30 p.m.  If it passes this committee, it will then be brought before the Pulaski County Quorum Court on February 22, 2011 at 7:00 p.m.  Both meeting will be held on the fourth floor of the Pulaski County Administration Building located at 201 South Broadway in Little Rock. 

Help us support this legislation.  Each person has a network of family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. All it takes is a little of your time to come down to the Pulaski County Quorum Court on February 8, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. and show your support.  Please help us to get the word out!  We need you and anyone else you can bring with you to be there for both meetings.  We especially need people who live in unincorporated Pulaski County to attend.
