BACKGROUND:
California‘s SB 250, The Pet Responsibility Act
Each year, over $250 million dollars is spent housing and euthanizing
homeless dogs and cats in California. Approximately 1 million dogs and cats
enter California’s shelters each year, and over half are euthanized (killed)
simply because there are not enough homes. California shelters are seeing an
explosion of animals relinquished to shelters in this bad economy, meanwhile
the shelters are faced with budget cuts and laying off staff.

SB 250 provides a reasonable, fiscally responsible step towards reducing pet
overpopulation in California in two ways: by fostering responsible pet
ownership through increased animal licensing, and by offering incentives for
owners to spay and neuter their pets.

Please note that SB 250 does not affect feral cat caregivers. The bill
applies only to pets that live on your property… Since January 1, 2009,
California has spent over $100,000,000 tax dollars just to house and
euthanize unwanted pets… To learn more about SB 250, including several
