Connecticut HB 5795, HB 5743, and HB 5443 Will Help Both People and Animals!
PLEASE CONTACT YOUR STATE LEGISLATORS!
By raising $1 million for the sterilization of low income individuals’ companion animals and free-roaming cats, HB 5795 ("An Act Concerning the Spaying, Neutering and Vaccination of Dogs and Cats") will (1) save animal lives by significantly reducing the free-roaming cat population, unwanted animals births in general, and shelter intake and euthanasia rates; (2) dramatically reduce animal impoundment costs; and (3) protect public health and safety by reducing the incidence of common canine and feline behavioral problems such as aggression, roaming and spraying. This program would be funded in a variety of ways, such as through increased dog licensing enforcement, a voluntary income tax check-off, and increased fees for chaining dogs and permitting dogs to roam at large.
