It's already law that your pooch must be snipped, but starting tomorrow it is enforceable. If you didn't know about this, that's because "though Animal Services is charged with enforcing the mandatory spay-and-neuter law, it does not intend to do so," according to City Controller Laura Chick's scathing audit released in the summer.
