If I adopt an animal from your facility, does it have to get altered?
Yes. As per Arkansas State Statute 20-19-103(a), it is unlawful for any animal shelter, humane organization, or rescue group to release an animal that has not been altered to the new owner; unless it is under three (3) months or not healthy enough to handle the surgery, at which point you will be responsible for making sure it gets altered when it reaches the correct age or state of health. A violation of this statute would result in a citation with a fine of up to $500.
