Do I have to get my pet "fixed"?
Hamilton County normally requires domestic pets be sterilized by age of 6 months. Under the provisions of the Hamilton County Ordinance: Any person owning or having custody of a dog or cat which is older than 6 months of age which has not been sterilized and for which the person owning or having custody of such an animal does not have a written certification from a licensed veterinarian stating that it is not in such animal's best medical interest to be sterilized, is in violation of the ordinance. If the animal is older than 9 months of age and is not spayed or neutered, a breeder's permit is required. For additional information, you may want to review Title 15, Article 2.1 of the Hamilton County Code of Ordinances.
