The Guilford County (NC) Commission is holding a public hearing on Thursday, September 21, on a proposal that would require cat and dog owners to spay/neuter their dogs by the age of 6 months or pay a $200 fee for an intact animal permit. The proposal offer a few exceptions, however AKC believes that the decision of when and whether to spay or neuter a dog is one that should be made by a dog’s owner in conjunction with their veterinarian, not as the result of arbitrary laws.
