Do you think pet owners who are not licensed breeders should be required to sterilize their pets?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 28, 2007
“No. Just in case they want to breed them later on if it turns out to be a good pet. You don’t need a license to breed most animals.”
“I think they should. Like Bob Barker says at the end of every ‘The Price is Right,’ ‘Have your pets spayed or neutered.’”
“That’s a tough question. On the one side you should have the right to breed your own pets. But at the same time there is an overpopulation of animals, and I hate to see so many animals being put down.”
“I think it should be the owners’ decision, but there should really be more incentives for people to sterilize their pets. I just don’t like the idea of making it mandatory.”
