(Las Vegas, NV) — Las Vegas’ four-year-old spay and neuter ordinance is credited for reducing the city’s number of unwanted pets.

Animal control officials say more dogs and cats are being fixed, and there has been a 45 percent drop in the number of animals being turned into the local shelter since 2009.

Pets at least four-months old must be spayed and neutered in Las Vegas.
