Pasadena City Council Approves Ordinance Requiring Pets To Be Spayed, Neutered

PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — Pasadena city officials are considering a policy that would require pet owners to spay or neuter their dogs and cats after a city ordinance was passed earlier this week, the Pasadena Star-News reports.

The City Council Monday passed an ordinance that would require pets over the age of four months old to undergo the procedure, according to the report.

The ordinance was proposed after a councilman requested that the city ban pit bulls. After determining Pasadena could not legally ban a specific dog breed, the plan was proposed by the Public Safety Committee, which worked in collaboration with the Pasadena Humane Society and the Department of Public Health.

The city attorney is expected to draft the proposal in the next 60 days, according to the Pasadena Star-News.

Similar laws are already in effect for pet owners in the city of Los Angeles as well as Los Angeles County, which includes unincorporated areas.
