Legislation is now pending to prohibit canine/feline devocalization in New York State. Massachusetts took that humane step in 2010. And cutting vocal cords to stifle a dog's or cat's voice—a repugnant act of animal cruelty performed for convenience or profit—has long been illegal throughout most of Europe.
Powerful lobbies that profit from devocalization are working to kill this humane legislation or riddle it with loopholes, such as by allowing pet owners to have their dogs and cats devocalized! That does NOT benefit animals; devocalized animals are abandoned like any other. All it does is sanction and promote an act of animal cruelty for human convenience and profit.
If pro-devocalization lobbies and their surprising allies win, helpless animals lose. Please don't let that happen.

URGE YOUR VET TO TAKE A HUMANE STAND TOO... No vet should perform OR sanction surgery whose sole purpose is to mask an animal's behavior. Devocalization is mutilation, not rescue.
