Pet problem is solvable

“A new leash on life” (May 5) was a great editorial about a serious problem that can be solved.

The first thing we can do is prevent the hordes of puppies being produced by pet owners who won’t spay and neuter, and the feral animals that expand exponentially. Mandatory licensing with significantly higher costs for intact pets; large fines for unlicensed pets; and low- and no-cost spay and neuter clinics would go a long way to prevent the problem of overcrowded shelters in the first place.

Counties like my own, which doesn’t have a facility for stray animals, should look for ways to care for these poor creatures.
