This one doesn't sound so bad. Looks like this bill actually has some promise.

They are trying to pass a bill in NJ that upon first glance looks fantastic. They want to increase the amount of a license for an unneutered/unspayed dog. Well its just dogs not cats which significantly decreases the amount of money and they don't say how the shelters will benefit from these increases. Looks like all the money goes back to the town. Some of these bills just sound a good game but don't really do much.

It is here too but it does nothing. It needs to be a huge amount to really make a difference and it needs to be included for cats as well. They wanted to increase the amount but only on dogs not cats. Right now there is only a 3 dollar difference between unneutered and neutered for both cats and dogs. They also require all shelters to have every animal spayed and neutered before releasing for adoption which we would love to have done but that would cause us 1) start euthanizing for population control and 2) where do we get all the extra money to pay for all the extra time the animals have to stay in the shelter and all the spays and neuters that we would have to have done at full price since most vets will not offer a discount. Right now the state offers a $20 spay/neuter program for people that adopt an animal from a shelter which is cheaper than what we have it done for even with a huge discount.
