Responding to the Oct. 3 letter from Lynda Daley, I couldn't agree more. We need free spay and neuter clinics. Taking it one step further, some of these same irresponsible pet owners won't even bother to take their pets down to have them fixed for free, so I suggest that it be unlawful to own a pet that is not fixed.
Yes, I think that the only way we are ever going to see an end to this horrible overpopulation and slaughter of our animals is to start passing laws to make it mandatory for our dogs and cats to be neutered and spayed. I would much rather see city monies go to "fix" an animal rather than to kill one.
Mahatma Gandhi said it best: "The greatness of a society and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
