The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Israel scored an achievement for dogs in Israel when the proposed Bill for the Regulation of the Supervision of Dogs, by which all dog owners who have not had their dogs spayed or castrated will pay a higher fee to renew their annual dog license, will soon reach the second and third reading in the Knesset.
The Law, proposed by the Society, with the cooperation of MK Eitan Kabel (chairman of the Lobby for the Protection of Animals in the Knesset) and MK’s Feina Kirshenbaum, Nitzan Horowitz and Dov Hanin, was raised for discussion in the Economic Committee of the Knesset today, after passing the first reading.
The Committee determined that the difference in the cost of the license for dogs who are not neutered and those who have had the surgery will be NIS 300. In this manner the Law will encourage dog owners to neuter their dogs, thus preventing the birth of thousands of dogs who cannot find homes every year, leading to a life sentence of suffering in the streets or prolonged stays in dog shelters.

We hope that in the coming weeks the Bill will be presented to the Knesset for the second and third readings and will come into force very shortly.

 
At the same time the Society is continuing its project of sterilization for cats and dogs at subsidized rates. The special offer, which started in April, will continue till the end of May, thanks to contributions that the Society received specifically for this purpose.

Special offer prices:
Cat neutering – NIS 70
Dog castration – NIS 100
Spaying of small and medium sized bitches – NIS130
Spaying of large bitches – NIS 180
