The Department of Agriculture shall establish a spay neuter
assistance program that provides grants to nonprofit spay neuter
organizations and programs in the state. The purpose of this
program is to have more dogs and cats sterilized, thereby reducing
shelter populations and costs, euthanasia rates and threats to
public health and safety from rabies and other problems posed by
the growing population of stray, feral and abandoned dogs and cats.
