Currently in the state of NY there is a $3 surcharge for the licensing of unaltered pets. These $3 go to help fund the speutering of shelter animals & low income family pets. It is currently being proposed to allow local governments to use this money for whatever they want or to even stop collecting it at all. This is very unfortunate on the already burdened shelters so please join me in signing this petition to let Gov. Patterson know you are against this idea.
