    Hi Everyone,
    We are currently in the process of exploring the possibility of implementing a mandatory spay/neuter ordinance for dogs that have been impounded before their release from our shelter. I am reaching out to our esteemed group to gather insights and information on similar ordinances in your respective areas.
    If your region has such an ordinance in place, could you kindly share any relevant data that supports the effectiveness of such a measure? Additionally, if you have attempted to pass a similar ordinance and encountered challenges, we are keen to understand the main obstacles you faced.
    Your valuable input will contribute significantly to our decision-making process.
