CA Spay/Neuter Bill Vote To Be April 24th

(Wednesday, April 11, 2007)
Today, the California Assembly Business and Professions Committee discussed Assembly Bill 1634, known as the California Health Pets Act. However, at the request of its sponsor, Assemblyman Lloyd Levine, the bill will be further considered at the committee's April 24th meeting, during which a vote will be taken. It is possible that AB 1634 will be further amended, so please continue to monitor our website for updates.

The American Kennel Club would like to thank all who attended the hearing today in Sacramento. AKC commends all those who took the time to ensure that our message of responsible dog ownership and responsible dog breeding was heard in the state capitol.

Fanciers, breeders, concerned dog owners, and clubs are encouraged to continue politely communicating with their legislators about the unintended consequences of AB 1634.
