Breed-specific mandatory spay/neuter still has all the flaws of any other type of breed-specific law (including identification of breeds/types of dogs to be neutered), has not been shown to be effective at reducing dog populations, and is not supported by no-kill advocates or other animal welfare experts.

Warwick weighing mandatory neutering of pit bulls
6:51 PM Tue, Apr 27, 2010
WARWICK, R.I. — For Ann Corvin, director of the Warwick Animal Shelter, there is nothing worse that having to euthanize a dog that could make a perfectly good pet….
Corvin is now hoping that a new spaying and neutering ordinance … will reduce the number of “bully breeds” whose lives end at the animal shelter….The ordinance … requires that all pit bull and related breeds be neutered unless they are owned by a licensed breeder or are actively competing in shows.
