AB 1634, the California Healthy Pets Act has passed the Assembly Floor and is now moving on to the Senate to be voted on. The California Healthy Pets Act would require the spaying and neutering of most cats and dogs by the time the pet is four months old. The act is being proposed as a solution to pet overpopulation.
On the other side, there are many opponents of this bill. They say that the bill does not really solve the problem of pet overpopulation, will affect reputable breeders, and many pet owners are concerned about the safety and health of their pet being spayed or neutered at a young age.
