cats and dogs have a voice in mass.

"to take the voice of an animal would be the equivalent of taking a person's voice or a person's ability to communicate"

massachusetts agrees. they recently banned devocalization surgery, a procedure which cuts or removes an animal's vocal cords, rendering them permanently unable to bark or meow. it can also cause serious health problems - not to mention your pet would no longer be able to alert you if something is wrong.

anyone who breaks the law for non-medical reasons may be punished by fines and up to five years in prison.
