The city of North Las Vegas, a suburb of Las Vegas in Clark County, Nevada, has adopted a mandatory spay/neuter law. It is now a crime to have a pet 4 months of age or older that is not sterilized and can be punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a fine up to $1,000.
There are exceptions for licensed breeders, permitted animal fanciers and animals a veterinarian says should not have the surgery for medical reasons.
