Absolutely, unless they have a business license to breed and sell. I don't know of any city oppossed to takin in more $$.

In reality though the politicians will side with the irresponsible cuz in the end the vote is mightier than the $. And given todays economy it's probably worth more.

That's a loaded question Jimbo,lol. No there shouldn't, BUT, it should be REALLY expensive if you don't want to.

We have such an ordinance here in Chicago. If a dog is picked up as a stray, either by an ACO, Police Officer, or even a citizen, it MUST be spayed/neutered before redemption. As always, the owner reserves the right to contest in an Administrative Hearing, however, if they lose, the dog/cat must be spayed/neutered, and they have to pay all the boarding fees for the animal being left in the shelter, while the owner goes to court.

The local AWL here has given us spay/neuter certificates anything that is adopted from our shelter is spayed for free. We have started giving these to people who surrender puppies/kittens and keep the mothers. Now this is free of charge all they have to do is take the animal to the vet. We still end up charging people for not having the adopted animals sterilized and still receive litters from the same people over and over. Some people are lazy idiots and others are attached to their pets reproductive organs! i dont get it either way. My point is if there was such a law you would spend every waking moment in court because of these kinda people. I live in a fairly small area so I can just imagine what it is in cities.

Yeah, it is aggravating, isn't it?? Fortunately, if folks here in Chicago wish to contest the ordinance, they do not stand much of a chance of winning such a case. Over 90% of those that do contest, lose, and they still have to get their animals spayed/neutered. Good thing is, our officers do not have to appear in court! The ACO just has to do an affidavit that they did see the animal at large, and they did impound such as a stray. Our city law department does the rest! Unfortunately, it does not act as much of deterant to getting animals sterilized, we still get over 30,000 calls for service every single year, most of which are stray/vicious complaints! As always, a losing battle! But I guess this gives us job security...always idiots who allow their animals to roam and impregnate other animals.
