Warning: apartment regulations apply to you … and/or your pet
Jan 2011 24

A New York City apartment building landlord is requiring tenants who have pets to have them spayed or neutered before they can move in.

The New York Times had an article about it in today’s paper:

Archie Gottesman says, “We just wanted to emphasize the pet overpopulation problem … It may not save the entire population. But it may have more of an effect.”

There are an estimated 68 pets in the 243-unit building and apparently they tenants have had no problem complying. Most of them, at least.

One tenant, Jessica Glick, said friends of hers from college wouldn’t allow the necessary surgery.

“They didn’t want to emasculate him.”
