Spay, neuter law will affect breeders, owners

Publication/Event date: 2013-12-15
Publication name: Camarillo Acorn

Summary:
Filing out of a Ventura County Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday, proponents of a county ordinance that mandates dog and cat owners in unincorporated areas have their pets sterilized appeared rather subdued for a group that just won a ruling it believes will be a key factor in making Ventura a no-kill county.

Summary:
Are you missing a dog in your life? Would you love to have a dog but are reluctant to take on the full responsibility? Maybe you live in a small apartment or are worried about the burden of unexpected veterinary bills. Or perhaps you recently lost your dog and aren’t ready for another full-time dog. Well, there is a way to enjoy doggie companionship and help a dog in need on a temporary basis: it’s called fostering. Fostering a dog is one of the most rewarding ways to get that sublime dog love without having the full responsibility of lifelong guardianship.
