Maryland Becomes the Second State With a REAL Law Banning Devocalization of Dogs and Cats
It started with Massachusetts, which in 2010 became the first state with a real law banning devocalization—the cutting of vocal cords to stifle a dog’s or cat’s voice.
On April 14 at 10:30 a.m., Gov. Martin O’Malley is scheduled to sign the law that will make Maryland the second to prohibit this cruel convenience surgery.
