Ala. House to address spay/neuter clinics
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Some Alabama lawmakers and animal lovers want to make sure that nonprofit spay and neuter clinics can continue to operate in the state.
The House of Representatives is expected to debate a bill Tuesday clarifying that veterinarians can work for the nonprofits that provide low-cost spay and neuter operations.
A state board has previously proposed rules that would shut the clinics down by prohibiting non-veterinarians from hiring veterinarians.
Supporters say the clinics are needed to address Alabama’s pet overpopulation problem.
Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard said last week that the bill limits the services the clinics can provide so they will not be unfair competition to full-service veterinarians.
