Manteca, CA passed mandatory spay/neuter for pit bull breeds in 2008. Now their city council is considering extending MSN to all breeds. All dogs over 6 months of age would need to be spayed or neutered, with very narrow and unworkable exceptions. A hearing was held on March 30, and the city council is expected to bring up the issue again on April 7.
Manteca residents should contact city council members to express their opposition to this ordinance, and attend the city council meeting on Tuesday, April 7, at 7 p.m. at the Civic Center, 1001 W. Center St, Manteca.
Remind city council members that the Manteca Police Officers Association and Manteca Police Employees Association opposed AB 1634, which would have extended to the entire state the same law that Manteca is now considering.
