Urge your Virginia State Senator to support the spay/neuter bill, SB 622!

Update: Virginia Spay/Neuter Bill Held Over Until 2015

Virginia’s spay/neuter bill, which would create a statewide spay/neuter fund for Virginia’s cats and dogs, has been continued to next year. This means that it won’t be voted on this year, but it will be reconsidered in 2015.

This bill would fund spay/neuter surgeries for feral cats, animals in pounds and shelters, and pets of low-income residents.

Thank you for taking action and alerting your senators about this important bill. While there may not be progress on the bill now, Alley Cat Allies will stay actively involved and continue to push for this and other humane policies in Virginia. We’ll keep you updated on how you can continue to support spay/neuter resources for Virginia’s cats and dogs.

AC_01272013_VACats_thumb.jpgVirginia state senators will soon consider a groundbreaking bill that would save the lives of countless animals across the state. The proposed law would create a fund that would greatly increase the availability of spay/neuter where it is needed most. This bill would fund spay/neuter surgeries for community cats, animals adopted from pounds and shelters, and pets of low-income residents. Alley Cat Allies’ research shows that these categories of animals have the greatest need for spay/neuter services. The funding would be provided by a small surcharge paid by wholesale distributors and manufacturers of pet food.
