Today we’re reporting on answers from our poll of Alabama’s veterinary clinics regarding their support of nonprofit spay/neuter clinics in the state.
The results come just two days before the Alabama State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners is set to vote on a set of rules that would make the state’s nonprofit spay/neuter clinics illegal.
Nonprofit veterinary clinics provide thousands of low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter surgeries to pets of low-income families and animal rescue groups. Closing these clinics would be a disaster for Alabama.
Our poll results show one-third of respondents oppose the measure and support the nonprofit clinics, and just under one-third support the measure claiming business competition from nonprofit clinics as their reason. More troubling, our poll results reveal that many clinics refused to take a stand on the issue.
