Indiana Senate Passes Bill to Address Pet Homelessness and Euthanasia

The Indiana Senate has approved House Bill 1201, which will significantly strengthen the state’s efforts to address pet homelessness and euthanasia in shelters. The bill will require that all cats and dogs be spayed or neutered before adoption from a shelter, rescue or animal control agency. The Humane Society of the United States strongly supports the legislation. Erin Huang, Indiana state director for The HSUS, issued the following statement:

“We are encouraged that the Legislature is taking this action to address companion animal issues in Indiana. This is a great opportunity to build unity, bring organizations together and open possibilities for better tracking spay and neuter data.”
