California Spay and Neuter Bill

Hello all,

There has been some concern regarding a spay and neuter bill in CA. I did a little research and
discovered that the LA City bill was voted on yesterday. I was not able to find information that
determines its success or failure. There is a separate bill proposed for the state. I have attached
links for both below.

I pulled CA Bill AB 1634 and highlighted several important points. That bill is attached in a word
document. Here is the "Reader's Digest" version for those of you who would like to cut to the
chase. There are several exemptions that apply to member/breeders offered in this bill.

2.    The owner's cat or dog belongs to a recognized registry or association, and either is a show
animal or being trained as a show animal, or has earned or is earning a title from a recognized
registry or association.


3. The owner is a breeder of working dogs.

If needed, the ISAA will provide a letter verifying membership. Please contact me directly if this is
something you need. At present, it appears that only those living in L.A. City may be effected.
