On Wednesday, April 19, the Kern County Animal Services Commission discussed a proposed ordinance that seeks to institute mandatory spay/neuter in Kern County.

No action was taken in this meeting, but this proposal will likely be voted on during the commission’s next meeting on May 17.

AKC Government Relations (AKC GR) thanks all who took the time to comment on this proposal.  While no action is needed at this time, AKC GR will provide updates as warranted on next steps in the coming weeks.
