Bob Barker lobbies for a spay/neuter law in Chicago

July 31, 2008 | 11:08 am

From the Chicago Tribune:

Former game show host Bob Barker wants the Chicago City Council to support a cause he famously ended "The Price of Right" with for decades: getting pets spayed and neutered.

Chicago is considering a proposal to require all dogs and cats to be spayed or neutered by the time they're 6 months old.

Barker told the council Tuesday the measure would reduce the number of unwanted pets. He says a similar law in Santa Cruz County, California, caused a 60 percent drop in cats and dogs placed in shelters in the following decade.

Those against the proposal say animal owners should decide whether to get their pets fixed.
