N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services looking at the state of animal welfare in the state

The N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is holding meetings to take input from the public on the topic of animal welfare and the laws and regulations in place to protect animals.

The organization will also take a look at the “oversight of public and private animal shelters, the state’s spay and neuter program, the scope of commercial breeding operations and the protection of consumers who purchase companion animals” – according to a story posted on the News 14 Carolina website.

Making spay/neuter surgeries more accessible is one of the goals being discused.

The more this sort movement on the animal-welfare front is reported and the more governmental bodies are at least bringing it to the table, the closer we might get to instituting better protections for animals.
