NJ Vets to Skip Classes by Donating Free Spay/neuter

S. 515 would permit veterinarians and physicians to earn continuing education credits by providing certain free veterinary or medical services.
Significantly, this bill will allow a veterinarian to offset up to 10 of their required 20 or more credits for continuing veterinary education by offering free spay or neuter services to (1) individuals on certain types of state and federal assistance and (2) municipalities or nonprofit organizations operating a TNR program.
New Jersey veterinarians could earn one hour of continuing education credit from the State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners for every two dogs or cats that are spayed for free, and one hour credit for every four dogs or cats that are neutered, also free of charge.
