The Honorable Floyd "Buddy" Villines Pulaski County Judge
201 S. Broadway, Ste. 400 Little Rock, AR 72201
Dear Judge Villines,
On behalf of my friends at PETA, I am writing to urge you to support the proposal to establish differential license fees for dogs and cats in Pulaski County. Differential fees save lives by motivating people to spay and neuter their animal companions.
When U.S. animal shelters are killing nearly 4 million dogs and cats every year because there are many more animals than there are good homes for them, preventing the births of unwanted animals with differential license fees is a no-brainer!
The state of New York and many cities, including St. Louis, Mo.; Columbia, S.C.; and your own county's North Little Rock, have differential licensing fees that have proved helpful in encouraging spaying and neutering. Please do the right thing for animals by supporting the differential licensing proposal.
Very truly yours,
