Default Enforcement Begins Of Spay/Neuter Ordinance For Pit Bull Dogs

Mandatory Law Effective August 13

By Michael P. Neufeld
Sunday, August 9, 2010

San Bernardino, CA - The new mandatory Pit Bull spay/neuter ordinance in the unincorporated areas of the county will be enforced on Friday, August 13, by San Bernardino County Animal Care & Control.

Pit Bull-type dogs represent 20 percent of all dogs in the county's animal shelter system and are the number one breed to be euthanized.

If a Pit Bull or Pit Bull type dog is not sterilized by this date, a citation may be issued. The fine for the first offense is $100, the second offense fine is $200, and a third offense within a one year period carries a $500 fine.

To avoid receiving a citation, Animal Care and Control encourages all owners of Pit Bull type dogs that reside in the unincorporated areas of San Bernardino County to have their dogs spayed or neutered by August 13.

VOUCHERS

San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control currently issues $50 vouchers to residents of the unincorporated areas of San Bernardino County to encourage the spaying/neutering of all dogs.

To further assist owners of Pit Bull and Pit Bull type dogs to comply with the provisions of the new law, Animal Care and Control will make available 300 spay and neuter vouchers that are worth an additional $100.

This will provide an owner of a Pit Bull or Pit Bull type dog with a total of $150 towards the spaying or neutering surgery for their Pit Bull type dogs.

The vouchers will be provided on a first come, first serve basis and are redeemable at pre-approved veterinary clinics that have agreed to accept the County's vouchers.

STATE GRANT

The funds for the additional $100 spay/neuter vouchers are being provided through a $15,000 grant from the California Department of Food and Agriculture and other additional private contributions to support this effort.

The additional assistance provided to owners of Pit Bull and Pit Bull dogs will be at no additional cost to the taxpayers of San Bernardino County. To see if you qualify for a voucher, please contact POPCO at 1-888-767-2550.

INFORMATION

For more information or to access San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control services, call 1-800-472-5609, or visit the division's website at ANIMAL CONTROL.

I could have sworn we had tried this on black people in the early 1900's.

We don't like you, so we're going to slowly annihilate the species.

San Bernardino County could solve a whole lot more of their problems if they started spaying/neutering some of their human residents.

Ownership of Pit Bulls is completely banned in Denver and several other counties around me. Denver gives you one chance to take the dog else ware and if itís caught in the city a second time they destroy it.

Yeah, that couldn't possibly have anything to do with their higher attack numbers.

Correct.

There are at least four different breeds which all get lumped under that category.

This is the standard that Denver is using.
A pit bull is defined as any dog displaying the majority of physical traits of any one or more of these breeds.
The breeds of dogs known as "pit bulls" include any American Pit Bull Terrier,
American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, or any dog displaying the majority of
physical traits of any one or more of the above breeds, or any dog exhibiting those
distinguishing characteristics which substantially conform to the standards established by the
American Kennel Club or United Kennel Club for any of the above breeds
